Here's a very unusual Black Forest piece - bookends carved in the form of 2 fish and they are definitely a lot of fun. Dating from around the 1920's or 1930's, these stylized fish are very well carved and have nice big glass eyes. The carved suggestion of water is also very cleverly done. They measure 11 1/2" long when the 2 are next to each other and 4 3/4" high. We've had a lot of Black Forest carvings bears, dogs, cows, deer, etc. but these are the first fish we've seen. Maybe you'd like to put your copy of Moby Dick or perhaps a seafood cookbook between them. They're a wonderful find.
