Wonderful antique Victorian era Black Forest hand carved cigar or tobacco smoker's caddy, a hollow tree trunk cigar holder with impressive goat or mountain goat figure! A remarkable, the detail here is fantastic and the condition is the finest! A GREAT Animalier style work! A huge, impressively carved goat stands on rocky outcroppings just in front of the tree trunk cigar holder, large frawns hanging overhad! The popular lighter finish to the wood and the entire work has been carved from one large solid block of wood! HUGE, considering the finished size, the starting block must have been immense....you can even see the rings of the tree in the base. Superb, high quality and one you'd not be surprised to see in an old Swiss or German castle setting. Don't miss it!
Very good condition. A small rim chip or two along the back of the cigar/tobacco opening and a frawn tip or two. See pictures for measurements..
