German Bride’s Box


Beautifully painted German bride’s box dated 1756.  On the top are pictured two dancers described as “Gredel and Hans make a Bavarian dance,” and a musician with a zither.  The couple say, “We want to dance.  That way, we can still be close at night.” The musician responds, “I will play all the time. Just give me money, or I will be angry.”

The sides are painted with fruit and flowers.  Excellent original condition.
