Large antique 19th century Swiss Black Forest hand carved wood hunting trophy wall plaque, wonderful "Fruits of the Hunt" themed sculpture. Featuring a detailed still life of game birds suspended from a branch with leaves. All done in raised relief. The figures are carved from solid wood and mounted on a shaped panel. Superb carving with excellent detail, in particular the beautiful multitude of feathers. Measures 32" height x 17 1/4" wide x 4" deep. Displays beautifully showing a nice warm patina. Overall in good antique condition with general wear commensurate with age. The only flaw that I can see is an age gap in the wood on the top portion of the folded wing of the largest bird, I believe this area is called the covert feathers on the anatomy of a wing. This is visible on the side views of the wall plaque. This gap is likely an age related separation of the seam on the wood, not a result of damage and is not noticeable when looking straight on at the sculpture.
