Fabulous antique Victorian era Black Forest hand carved 12" wide double inkwell or inkstand with two round cut glass wells, ornate vines & foliage and rare pastoral themed cock or rooster figure!  I just love these old pastoral themed figures, more rare than the typical Black Forest bears and rank up there with the cow or bull figures, etc.  This one impressively sized and wonderfully preserved, don't miss it!

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 to the carving, possibly some leaf tips missing but in overall wonderful shape.  There is a bit of chipping around the rim of one inkwell and the wood inkwell lids are a bit rough but intact. See pictures for measurements.
