Black Forest 16 Desk Box Jewelry Carved Wooden Dog Rabbit Figures Nature c1900
Offering a large Black Forest desk box with a forest scene made in Switzerland circa 1900. The box measures 16 1/2" by 9" and stands 8 high. The body is c arved from one piece of wood and the lid is carved from another. It is designed as a chest nestled in a bed of ferns, plants and roots. Two dogs are on the roof, with one looking down at two rabbits below. Intricate large foliage carvings on and extending from the box.

It has been rubbed with a darkening stain which now has a nice patina. The lid is hinged and has the potential to lock though the original key is not here.

Inside the lid is a remnant of paper which reads The Bu.... A few letters and symbols can be distinguished, including a deer head with antlers and a train. There is red velvet lining the inside of the box. Some pieces of wood have broken away and are not available, including two dog feet, both dog tails and one rabbit ear.

A few leaf fronds are missing and one rabbit ear has been glued back on. A few broken pieces have been left in the box. The hinge of the lid works fine. The velvet is slightly discolored but not torn.

This is a lovely example of wood carving craftsmanship. The item "Black Forest 16 Desk Box Jewelry Carved Wooden Dog Rabbit Figures Nature c1900" is in sale since Thursday, June 28, 2018.
