Fabulous & rare antique Swiss Victorian to Edwardian era Black Forest hand carved 11" wall or bracket shelf, a beautiful work with large trophy style ibex or mountain goat bust, reticulated wall plaque and "Geneve" inscription! One of two nearly matching Black Forest bracket shelves that we're adding today, the other features a large chamois figural bust and the shelf surface is also marked "Geneve". This piece with a large, solid carved wood ibex with curled horns and two-toned glass eyes! The wall panel on which the bust is mounted is formed by pierced or reticulated foliage & edelweiss flowers. The inscription on the shelf surface is for Geneva, Switzerland so the piece was surely some Victorian-Edwardian traveler's souvenir. A lovely decorative accent and, as noted above, we have two similar pieces newly listed this week so be sure to browse some while you're with us. Thanks!
Very good condition. One of the long, curled horns has been chipped off just under the shelf surface and it is missing that tip. There is one chipped tendril or branch tip on the left side of the bottom. See pictures for measurements.
