Delightful & rare antique Victorian era Black Forest hand carved 10 3/4" tall match or spill holder, a "Fruits of the Hunt" style wall plaque with FOX figure, rifle, powder horn & match holding satchel! The entire piece has been carved from one solid piece of wood, just imagine the care and expertise it would take to transform that blank section of wood into such an intricate and detailed sculpture! Great lodge or ski cabin decorative accents but, of course, why not keep them a little closer to home so you can enjoy them every day! Great for matches in the kitchen or near the fireplace! Wonderful hunt theme and rare with the fox figure, fabulous!
Good-very good condition. One small chip that I can see, noted in the images and then there is the fox's tail which has been broken at the base and reattached at some point in its roughly 100 years. See pictures for all measurements.
