This item is a spectacular HAND CARVED BLACK FOREST BEAR HUMIDOR. it is in superb condition with no chips, cracks, repairs or other problems. It is as fine a piece of Black Forest that you can find. The carvings are beautifully detailed, the color and patina is spot on. The figure is quite large measuring 16 1/4"H. The bear is holding a walking stick in his right paw and a top hat in his left.. He stands in front of a hollowed out stump. This is a remarkable piece of carving talent as it's carved out of one piece of wood with only the top hat applied. it is the best piece of Black Forest that we've been able to find in several trips to Europe. Quality pieces like this one are simply getting harder and harder to find.
