Here's a rather rare subject for an 1800s carved Black Forest item, and for those of us who love cats (big and little) as well as dogs, bears, and chamois or stag, this one is really a treat to have found. It's a beautifully carved lioness (or perhaps it's a tiger), and the set is in such incredibly fine condition, complete with its inkwell top, (which are almost never still with these, by the way), it's a MUST have for the 'kitty' lovers among us. One very tiny nip to the tip of one ear, or is he only tipping it? Great patina to the old wood, and those oak leaves are spectacular! Lots of photos tell it all. Isn't is charming!
