PAIR Antique Carved Wood BLACK FOREST Bird Chicken Vase Epergne Candleholder
PAIR Antique Carved Wood BLACK FOREST Bird Chicken Vase Epergne Candle holder
~Direct from Europe~
~NOTE: This is one of several outstanding antique Black Forest pieces we acquired directly from a collector in France that liquidated their entire personal collection! It is a rare opportunity to obtain pieces that don’t often become available such as: A Black Forest cave a liquor with hunt dog; a Black Forest sheet music box; a Black Forest barometer; a Black Forest hunt dog on folding wall shelf!~
This listing is for a stunning PAIR of carved Black Forest “chicken” candleholders/epergnes. In the summer, the glass inserts were used and fresh cut flowers were arranged in the holders; in the winter the glass was removed and the holders were used for candlesticks!
~(We seldom find the epergnes, they are typically broken or lost over the years)~
~Obviously these were done by a master carver, just look at the details, even the eyes of the chickens are life-like! Notice the smaller chicks, the feather details, the contouring and shaping of the bodies~
~AN ORIGINAL MATCHED PAIR, see how they face one another~
Carved wood statues, 15”height x 8” x 7”;
Glass epergnes, approx. 8.25”height x 5.5”.
