This is a fantastically ornate HANDCARVED BLACK FOREST BOX. It is the most intricately carved piece of Black Forest carving that we’ve ever had in almost 25 years of dealing in Black Forest. This box was once most likely a Tantalus or liquor cabinet. Over time, all of the inner components have gone missing so, today, it’s an empty box but what a box!!!!!!! The carvings are spectacular and in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, breaks or missing bits. Every square inch of the box is carved. The foremost part is the lid which features two dogs chasing a fox into his lair. the front features a swinging door surrounded massive amounts of flora and fauna. Both of the ends and the back are also intricately carved. The box is very large measuring 16” wide, 13” deep and 14” h. While it is a shame the liquor set components are missing, as a stand alone item, this piece is stupendous.
