This item is a whimsical HAND CARVED BLACK FOREST DOG CIGAR HOLDER. This guy is a party animal. Not only does he have the neat basket on his back for cigars but he's also holding a bottle of wine in his right "hand" and a basket of goodies hang from his left "forearm". And he's garbed in a flowing robe. What a guy! The carving, color and patina are excellent as is his overall condition. The figure measures 13"H.
