This item is a handsome HAND CARVED BLACK FOREST CHAMOIS HAT RACK. While we called it a "hat rack', it is perfectly suited for a riding crop or dog lead holder amongst other things. This particular holder is smaller in size and not overwhelming like larger ones can be. It measures 21 1/2" long and projects 5" from a wall. Besides the Chamois head at the center there are four holders shaped like a chamois leg and hoof. The rack is decorated with traditional Black Forest carving subjects to include leaves and branches. Chamois's are small goat sized antelope family members indigenous to eastern Europe. This rack is in excellent condition with lovely color and patina.
