Eger (Germany) Now Cheb (Czech Republic)
The city of Eger in Bohemia, now Cheb in Czech Republic, specialized from the first half of the 17th century in the production of furniture and decorative pieces carved in low relief and constructed from different colored woods. This art was carried on in the same family across generations and some of the most popular workshops were those of Johann Georg Fischer (1587-1669) and Adam Eck.
