Fabulous and rare antique Victorian to Edwardian era Black Forest hand carved 6" tobacco humidor or inkwell fixture, a large bust of a bear with wonderful detail, two-tone glass eyes and hand painted accenting! The second large tobacco oriented bear figure in two weeks, this one is a bit smaller than the 12" bear we added last week but isn't he great! Entirely hand carved from solid wood, this piece is a wonderfully large bear figure from the shoulders up and his head is hinged and opens to the tobacco or ink pot well hidden inside! Great for the Black Forest collectors whichever use you end up deciding on. Don't miss him!
Very good-excellent condition. As you can see in the images, there are no chips to the ears or nose and no age or drying splits in the wood. The interior is empty. See pictures for measurements.
