We love the old hand carved Swiss Black Forest items, and from all evidence, so do you. The set is in from Paris a while back and only now being listed. They're fabulous! The overall height is 15", with the carved portion about 7" of that. The engraved mouth-blown epergne vases are in such fine condition, it's amazing. No chips at all on either rim. The carved bases have superb anatomical attention to the details of the birds. Mantel or centerpiece vases, you really almost never find them complete with glass inserts anymore. Photos show them for your review. Measurements noted on the photos, too.
Very good to excellent condition for age and type, the rarity of the engraved original glass flutes, vases, is quite remarkable. No chips on rim on either one, really pristine. The carved wood bases are charming, birds are wonderful. Even their beaks are still complete, as are wings. I find no chips unless a very tip of long leaves might be gone. A few very old woodworm holes can be seen, typical of the genre, age. Long since treated and not active. The carved paw feet only add to the appeal. Measurements noted on photos.
