A stunning and superb pair of all original hand carved epergne stands, Swiss Black Forest works of art from the mid-1800s, Animalier period. The anatomical depiction on these is magnificent. Large, they're about 9" without the glass and 12.5" tall with the old fluted glass vases set into place. Really a top artisan carver on these. And well cared for, as well.
Very good to excellent for age and type. There is no damage at all to the 4 fowl, and while you can see the old block of wood out of which they were carved has a slight split from age/drying (base), they really aren't chipped to speak of, either. Perhaps a leaf tip. One tip of a wing chipped very slightly. Beaks intact. No chips on either of the glass inserts. A really elegant pair. You are buying a pair (2).
