This item is a grand HAND CARVED BLACK FOREST TWIN BEAR SCHNAPPES SET. It is a wonderful example of the very best in Black Forest carving. These were highly sought after souvenirs by visitors to the region in the later part of the 18th century. This set is in wonderful condition with no chips, cracks, breaks, repairs or other issues. The set sits on a plinth measuring 14” long by 3 1/2” high.
The bears are dancing along with their grape pickers basket. They are about 9” high. Included is a 8” high etched decanter and six generous sized etched glasses measuring 4” high. They are a marriage but look great with the set. Overall, the set measures 14” to the top of the decanter. Whether a first set or an addition to a collection, this will be highly prized. I have recently found this set in the Black Forest Guide book “Swiss Carvings, The Fine Art of the Black Forest”. There is a photo of this set.
