For sale is a wonderful antique late 19th century Black Forest carving of a crested bird watching over a pair of eggs, with ferns and a flower behind, which would hold the matches. This piece is especially unusual because it has been painted in certain areas, including the eggs, leaves, and flower. Most of the trunk has also been painted dark brown, and there is even a bit of black around the roots of the tree.. The carving is quite well done, and quite charming. The piece measures about 8" tall, 4 1/2" wide, and about 2" front to back. It is in very nice antique condition. Please look carefully at the pictures as they are an important part of the description, and be sure to ask any questions. What an exceptional addition to your collection!
