Lovely vintage Edwardian era Black Forest hand carved 11 3/8" wide triple picture frame for CDV or "carte d'visite" sized photos with reticulated or pierced vines & foliage and original easel stand. This one dates to the early to mid 1900s we think, a bit newer than most of our Black Forest pieces but what a fabulous accent and what better way to work a great old frame with family photos into your Black Forest themed decor. Great even if you're not a collector, put pictures from that skiing or camping trip, place it in your lodge or cabin. Wonderful!
If you've followed us for a while you know I'm a big fan of the old hand carved "Black Forest" items that come to us from 19th century Switzerland, Germany, parts of France and Italy, where they pleased the Grand Tour tourists and still please us all today. These hand carved treasures range from whimsical small bears to large and elaborate mantel clocks, wall clocks, wall plaques showing the most awesome anatomical studies of stag, fowl, "fruits of the hunt". I've got more to list so look through the vast collection. I've just used quite a few piece in our own 2nd home decoration , Rocky Mountains location, and love the look as well as the heritage since my own ancestors hail from that region and others. The pieces work well in Country Manor, French Country, Ski Lodge or Hunt Lodge and even in a den or office. Everything from a pocket watch case to huge plaques - from needle and thread holders to cigar caddy - these decorative objects survive today a testament to the artisan's craft of carving wood.
Very good to excellent condition. I see no chips, splits, damage or repairs to note other than that the glass panels are replacements. See pictures for measurements.
