I'm not sure if this is a Black Forest carved shelf or an early Asian carved one (late 19th c), but it certainly works with Black Forest items, theme of nature and the interesting way it's carved into branches up top, a huge fruit or grape cluster below. Wonderful shelf size to use in a bathroom to stack hand towels on top of, or in a myriad of other ways. The slightly open worked top makes it seem to me not a clock bracket shelf, but useful for other accent, decor, ambient applications.
Very good to excellent condition, no chips or breaks, no cracks. Just an aged patina to that beautiful hand carved and solid wood. You can see the way in which it's hanging brackets on backside work, double-secure hanging mounts and easy to install. I can see a few old French woodworm holes from backside. The wood is great, any infestation long long ago eliminated by treatment. Heavy, solid, so charming! The shelf is 10.25" tall, 7" wide across the top and 6" in depth. Perfect size! Great for a kitchen, too, fruit theme.
