This item is a beautiful HAND CARVED BLACK FOREST INK STAND with CHAMOIS. It is brimming over with detail and interesting carvings. The color and patina are spot on and the carving quality is stunning. It features the standing Chamois, two glass inkwells which we believe to be original, leaf lids for the inks and a nicely carved pen tray. The figure, overall, is 8"H and the base measures 8 3/4" by 7". The carvings are in excellent condition save for one acceptable old age crack as seen in the photos on the left side of the pen tray. Otherwise, it is in excellent condition. This is a quality piece of Black Forest that one can treasure for years.
