I don't know if it's my own Swiss heritage or not (grandmother was born in Switzerland), but I am so bonded and drawn to the old Swiss carvings. Stunning fine sculptures in wood, from small functional items like this 11" match holder plaque, to huge decorative wall plaques with hanging "fruits of the hunt", clocks, free-standing carved sculptures from the Animalier movement in art. This is one, late 1800s, that astounds me - so much fine anatomical detail in the stag and the bird, and even the hunting rifle's stock is ornately carved. I've to it hanging in my kitchen right now, filled with stick matches. Match caddy, cabin or Country French decor, or accessory for the pipe or cigar crowd.

Very good to excellent condition for age and type. Most of these fine old ones do have some loss. This one, as with many, has lost the slender fragile antlers, a tip of an ear, and a little bit of a wing. Still, just as it is - gorgeous. It is 11" tall and 6.5" at widest. Oak leaves, hunter's bag, rifle, powder horn and the game from the hunt. The pouch holds the matches.
