Offered is a delightful and unusual Antique hand carved black forest bear (on a sled) trinket / jewelry box. This adorable box was probably a souvenir piece designed for grand tour patrons to Germany's Black Forest during the Victorian era. The box is simple, almost primitive in design and fully falls into the category of folk art. The East Lake and arts and crafts influence are clearly evident. This is a smaller box, perhaps made for a young girl or child. The hand carved top featuring the little bear on the sled was purely made to please and amuse.
The box measures 5 1/4" across x 3 3/4" deep x 3" tall. The box is in very good vintage condition with a nice patina thru out. This is an adorable box and will appeal to many different collectors. Teddy bear collectors, box collectors and black forest bear collectors. A wonderful addition to any collection!
