Wonderful 19th century Swiss Animalier carving, typical "Black Forest" charm. This one is a fully dressed and capped fox, a' la Aesop, sitting one a barrel and holding a large cup for your matches, toothpicks, stick candies - you'll figure out how to use him at table. SO much personality in this one. He's 5.5" tall, base is 4.25" x 3" uneven oval, woodland.
Very good to excellent condition throughout, with no chips to ears or snout, not breaks or cracks to the fox figure nor his cup, but you can see there is one old natural shrinkage crack that shows on the bottom side and very slightly on the base. View our photos to evaluate it. Love this one!
