Fantastic large 28" antique Victorian era Black Forest hand carved solid wood "Fruits of the Hunt" themed wall plaque with wonderfully detailed game figure and reticulated branches & oak leaves! Isn't this one wonderful! Nice larger size, finely detailed throughout and in an attractive lighter wood finish. The back panel or plaque is in solid carved wood with reticulated oak leaves at the sides with small clusters of three leaves top & bottom. The figures and accompanying oak leaves are also solid wood, hand carved into the amazing array you see here and bringing the depth of the piece to just over 4". A massive stag or deer figure the most prominent in the grouping, a smaller scissor-tailed bird to the left and both hung as if fresh from the hunt. Nestled behind the figures you branches & oak leaves. Truly impressive and in wonderful condition given its age, as you can see in the images. Also, one of two great old Black Forest hunt themed plaques that we're adding today so take a peek at the other while you're with us. Enjoy!
Very good condition. Some small chips to leaf tips here and there and the stag's horns are flawed with the outer having a chipped tip and the inner missing completely. No warping to the plaque and no other damage to the figures, at least that I could see on inspection. See images for all measurements.
