Wow, superlatives only on this guy, a HAND CARVED BLACK FOREST FALLOW DEER FIGURE. This is a fantastic piece representing the very best in Black Forest carving skill. The figure is very large - possibly the largest one of these type figures we've ever had. The subject - a Fallow Deer - is unusual, most times they did stags or ibex, etc. The figure has fabulously detailed carving, wonderful color and patina and it is in superb condition. It is truly a treasure. It stands 28" tall to the tip of its antlers and 22" to the tip of his ears. The basic figure is carved out of one piece of wood. It is applied to a plinth and the antlers are also applied. They can be easily removed for safe transportation.
