Wonderful antique 19th century to early 1900s Black Forest hand carved 17" telescoping desk or table top book rack, fabulous condition with reticulated foliage & two chamois or mountain goat figures! A fine piece, remarkable detail to the carved side panels and all in great shape! These are used to hold and display a collection of leather bound books, the sides slide out to a total expanded length of 24"! Great detail, that undeniable Black Forest decorative appeal and fabulous condition!
Very good-excellent condition. A tiny chip or two possible but nothing large or really worth mentioning...amazing considering the extent of the carving and all those thin, delicate reticulated portions. See pictures for measurements.
