An exceptionally fine c.1890-1910 hand carved jewelry chest, box, from the Black Forest carvers of Switzerland. The pair of crested birds up top are superb anatomical studies, both, and remain in such fine condition throughout. The added width at widest point with legs makes this a large 9.75”. Standing tall, too, at 9.5” tall. Beautifully ornamented throughout.
Very good to excellent condition throughout. Has a nice interior that is all the old original royal blue silk satin. Very light age and marks here or there but suitable for use and no odors or stains. There is a working lock but we do not have a working key at listing time. If we can add one from our stashes we will do so and will annotate the listing and perhaps up our price a bit. One leg has a little nibble (see images) and there are just a very few woodworm holes from ages ago. Nothing active and not much for age. Measurements in full are noted on the photos.
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.
