This is one of the sweetest pieces of Black Forest carving that we have ever run across. It is a nicely carved spoon with the usual foliage carved into the piece, but at the top there is a wonderful looking owl sitting on a limb. The piece measures 10 inches long in total. The bowl of the spoon is 2 inches wide by 3 ½ inches long and is quite deep. The main point of interest, the owl, is 1 5/8 inches long. Foliage is located between the owl and the bowl and there is a bit of foliage behind the owl and hanging over its head. The condition is consistent with age. There are a few small chips of wood missing along the edges of the bowl. There are several small chips of wood missing from three flower blossoms, but the nature of the carving makes it difficult to determine that they are actually missing. There is a very thin shrinkage crack running along the length of the owl’s body. However this crack does not extend through the piece and has not jeopardized the integrity of the spoon at all. Overall, this is a wonderful item, which will definitely charm and please its new owner.
