This item is a fabulous HAND CARVED BLACK FOREST INKWELL. The figure is beautifully carved with exceptional detail and lovely color and patina and includes glass eyes. The rabbit is positioned on an oval base seated on four round feet. Overall, the inkwell measures 8" high and the oval shaped base measures 6 1/2" by 5". The music box plays beautifully and there is a label on the base naming the tune in probably German but we can't really read it nor translate it. It plays beautifully with good volume and tone. The porcelain ink insert appears original. Rabbit figures are somewhat scarce Black Forest subjects. This is a wonderful piece of Black Forest that exemplifies the quality of the workmanship of the genre.
