Fine antique Victorian era Black Forest hand carved 14" wall hanging plaque, an amazing spill or cigar & match holder formed by woven basket, foliage & farm implements! Yes, this one has some damage but the visual appeal is fully intact and it still has years of enjoyment left in it :). A large woven looking basket holds either cigars or fire starting paper rolls (spills), what looks like an empty quiver holds matches. The basket, foliage & implements have all been carved from one solid piece of wood, mounted on the rough wood looking plaque. A great piece, don't miss it.
Good condition. The pictures show the small chips, etc. rather well so take a look. There is a restoration to a chip or break at the top center where the hang hole is. It is filled there with the carving mimicked but the finish needs a bit of blending. There is also a warp to the back wooden plaque. See pictures for measurements.
