The bears are always a favorite, aren't they. And what could be more fun than a hand carved antique Black Forest (Swiss) bear that stoppers up your bottle or attends a gift of wine for your hosts? I love these little guys. We so seldom find them in excellent condition, but the we do we always add them to inventory for you. They never last long. So fun for cabin or ski lodge (not that far away, is is) or for the Holidays decorating, too. This one is c.1890-1930, I'd say, and he has painted mouth and glass eyes, wonderful anatomical expression by the carver.

Very good to excellent condition, the old cork is hand shaved and the bear is entirely hand carved. Not a single chip nor flaw to note on him, which is quite rare in these smaller carved pieces. Measurements are noted on photos, but he is 4.25" tall overall.

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!
