Wedding Congratulations Matchbox Scene, Handmade in Germany
This little wedding congratulations box says "Viel Glück" on the outside (that's German for "Good Luck"). Slide the stiff paper box open and inside is a wooden box with a wooden scene: a bride and a groom and a little chapel.
These matchbox scenes are not the actual size of a matchbox. All of our German Matchbox Scenes (we have many more for Christmas) measure 4" wide x 3" tall x 1 1/2" deep... so, much larger than a standard matchbox. These will fit fully in the palm of your hand.
The components and the matchbox are all made of painted and natural wood. The background scene is printed paper. Handmade from carved and turned wood and handpainted by artisans of the Graupner Workshop in Crottendorf, in the heart of Germany's Erzgebirge Mountains. The workshop, noted for their bold use of color, is run by Kordula & Ronald Graupner and their 15 employees.
