An interesting hand carved Black Forest Bear Ashtray. This hand carved wood bear measures approximately 6 1/4 inches in length and is approximately 3 1/2 inches in height. The removable metal insert is made of brass. There is a curious metal bell that hangs from a dark blue ribbon around the bears neck. The inscription on the bell reads "St NICOLAS DEVEROCE". I believe this refers to the French Alp village of Saint Nicolas DeVeroce near Mont Blanc and this piece was probably a souvenir from there. This bear will date around 1900 and has some chips from use along with two age cracks next to the brass insert. Please see close ups. A fun piece for collectors of bears! Price includes shipping.
