Antique French Carved Oak Hunt Hound Pheasant Pier Mantel Mirror Black Forest

~Direct from France~
~Substantial 19th century carved French mantel/pier mirror~
~Stunning hand carved details, probably commissioned for an aristocratic hunting lodge, circa 1880, in the Black Forest region of Europe, where France, Germany, and Switzerland meet. (Our recent container included several similar pieces, with similar opulent “hunt” carvings)~

~Huge carved crown has a Black Forest style, dimensional carved pheasant, standing amongst fruit and foliage. Note the details: pheasant eye and beak; feathers and wings; legs and feet; body shape and stance. The fruits having stems and leaves, look as life-like as the pheasant!~

~Each upper corner has ‘hunt hound’ or dogs facing towards the center. The hounds each having a pheasant in their mouth, and more master carver details: note the eyes and ears of the dogs; the noses and shape of the heads; details of the hunt pheasant in their mouths. The hound heads are further surrounded by more Black Forest carved foliage, with bundles of carved fruits draping below and carved berries to each side~

~Both sides of the frame are fully covered with more of the dimensional fruits and foliage as well as a large pheasant(snipe) adorning each side~
~Mirror is beveled and scalloped~
