Antique Black Forest Carved Wood Chest, Hunting Theme
Rare antique Black Forest hand carved wood box or chest. Decorated with carved raised relief scrolling and cross hatching. The lid features a fully three dimensional sculpture of two hunters and an ibex. Retains a working lock and original key. The hinged lid opening to deep interior. Resting on four carved wood bun feet. Stands 12 5/8" height x 10 1/4" length x 5 3/4" width.
In overall good antique condition with general wear commensurate with use and age. An old and clean glue repair to the standing hunter figure, and it appears he was holding something in his hands perhaps a rifle or staff. Chipping to the feet, and old worm holes, visible in the picture.
