Superb anatomical study in this late 1800s to earliest 1900s hand carved Black Forest bear cub. He's got glass eyes and the cutest expression on his face. Seated on forest setting with the original round brass cup in place, bright and shiny enough to use at table for an open salt if you wish. It would have originally been a smoker's caddy or stand, for pipe or cigar, and the brass bowl an ashtray. No stains on it, brightly polished. Measurements are noted on the photos.
Very good to excellent, no chips on this one at all unless perhaps a tip of a leaf/frond there where he sits. Bear is carved separately and attached from bottom with a screw mount (see images). Brass cup is original and un-stained, brightly polished. Fit for table!
