Large Black Forest Bear Gong
Here's an unusual Black Forest antique - it's a bear holding a gong in one paw and the stick to strike it in the other. It's a wonderful carving from Germany around the 1890's. The piece is 17 1/4" to the top on the bear's ears and 18" to the top of his stick. The carving is well done and nicely detailed - the bear has a lovely expression, almost a smile. He has little glass eyes and he looks great from all angles. The gong makes a nice classic gong sound.
If your looking for a way to round up the family for dinner? Look no further, do it the fun way with a bear gong, which is also a rare collectible find.
