Fine antique Black Forest hand carved 3-tier jewelry chest, a lovely old box with hunt style game bird figures on top, ornate floral & foliate decoration and attractive lighter wood finish! We've acquired a couple of these wonderfully carved c. 1890-1920 Swiss Black Forest jewelry chests from a French estate. This one is slightly smaller than the other, and has two game bird type figures up top and ornate textured, floral & foliate accented facade. This one a three tiered chest, the lid with figures and center front lock panel lift up to release the four upper compartments, hinged so they open outward and expose the larger base compartment. No key in the images but I'll search our extras to see if one will work and note here in the listing if so. A lovely, nicely sized Victorian to early Edwardian Black Forest chest!
Good to very good for age and type. The beak on the upper bird has a chip and there are a few chips to wing tips. Some wear to the finish and the interior compartment linings have been mostly removed for some reason. The hinged compartments swing smoothly, there is no warp, no woodworm, it's just lovely start to finish. Ready to display and love. The box is 8" tall and the base is 7 1/8" x 4 1/4".
