Incense has been part of traditional Christian celebrations for centuries. The twelfth day of Christmas is the festival of Epiphany, on January 6, which celebrates the day that the Magi visited the infant Jesus and presented their gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. German Christians often mark the occasion, and the end of the Christmas season, by burning incense in “smokers” or Räuchermänner.

By 1800, New England was the center of the world's whaling industry. Sailors spent long months at sea, and one of the ways they passed the time was creating scrimshaw—etched bones or tusks that were blackened with soot or tobacco to highlight the design. This contemporary scrimshaw box is made of water buffalo bone and reproduces a design that a sailor may have made for his sweetheart at home.

Cloisonné was developed thousands of years ago during the Byzantine era and traveled via the Silk Road to China, where it has flourished as an art form ever since. To create a design in cloisonné, an artist's original sketch must be traced using thin strips of wire. Into this wire "scaffolding" is inserted powdered enamel that, when baked, fills the outlines and creates a porcelain-like appearance.
