A very decorative Wall Coathook with Mountain Goat's head and intricately carved oak leaves. Carved in limewood and with inset glass eyes, these pieces are known generically as 'Black Forest' but in fact were hand- made in carving workshops near Geneva in Switzerland in the late 19th century. (The name merely harks back to an earlier period when the Black Forest region of southern Germany had produced traditional woodcarvings of animals) Measures 21 inches wide x 9 high- in excellent condition
