Wonderful antique Victorian to early Edwardian era hand carved 8.75" casket, a charming box with ornate pierced or reticulated vines & foliage and bird figural top!  Isn't this one lovely!  The open nature of the top begs to have it filled with an aromatic potpourri, doesn't it?  A delightful little song bird up top and the base or feet in the form of large leaves.  

If you've followed us for a while you know I'm a big fan of the old hand carved "Black Forest" items that come to us from 19th century Switzerland, Germany, parts of France and Italy, where they pleased the Grand Tour tourists and still please us all today. These hand carved treasures range from whimsical small bears to large and elaborate mantel clocks, wall clocks, wall plaques showing the most awesome anatomical studies of stag, fowl, "fruits of the hunt". I've got more to list so look through the vast collection. I've just used quite a few piece in our own 2nd home decoration , Rocky Mountains location, and love the look as well as the heritage since my own ancestors hail from that region and others. The pieces work well in Country Manor, French Country, Ski Lodge or Hunt Lodge and even in a den or office. Everything from a pocket watch case to huge plaques - from needle and thread holders to cigar caddy - these decorative objects survive today a testament to the artisan's craft of carving wood.

Very good condition. A few small nips possible but in overall fabulous condition, as you can see from our images. See pictures for all measurements.
