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.

This one is a charming medium sized smoker's stand. There's a larger rear barrel with lid for shorter cigars or, most likely, pipe tobacco and two smaller side barrels for matches, likely unused and spent matches. The cock or rooster always a popular figure and more rare than the more common bears and game birds.  This figure quite large, majestic even and with wonderful detail!  The set is just in from France, but is a Swiss-carved item of the Black Forest regions of 19th century Europe. 

Very good to excellent condition.  Possibly a tiny nip or two but no larger chips, cracks or damage to note.  See pictures for measurements.
