A splendid and early hand carved Black Forest box with a remarkably crafted pheasant cock up top, his mate at the base of the large log upon which he stands so majestically. The box is an old one, c.1850-80s. It has the old silk velvet lined interior and the old lock. I'm sure that lock will work, but at listing time we have not matched any of our old spare casket/box keys to fit it. If we can, we'll annotate the listing and also charge a little more (add to price). Superb detail to the birds. I can't even imagine how anyone could carve away all that is NOT that pair of pheasants perched in the wild - can you?

Very good to excellent condition for age and type. That long slender (and vulnerable) pheasant cock's tail does have one clean break along the wood grain and has an old repair. More to be felt with gentle fingertips than to be seen, however, it's not going to alter your enjoyment of this one at all. I see nothing else chipped nor missing, and the entire carving is from a solid piece of old wood, no splits from age or drying. A remarkable and highly appealing box, this one. The base is 7 3/4" x 5 3/4" and the piece stands 6.5" tall.

Our photos are large and clear. We do expect our customers to review them all, evaluate the item based on both our description and our images. Thanks for all the compliments - we love what we do! Antiques & Uncommon Treasure - all the best, all the time.
