Antique Hand Carved Wood BLACK FOREST Monkey Dutch Shoe Police German Military
Antique Carved Wood BLACK FOREST Monkey Dutch Shoe Police German Ink Well
~Direct from Europe~
~NOTE: This is one of several outstanding antique Black Forest pieces we acquired directly from a dealer 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!~
~Exquisite attention to the details, the monkey’s hair, his face, his arms and even his FINGERS!!~
We haven’t been able to determine what it represents exactly. Monkey sitting on the wooden shoe, almost looks like he represents military. And the shoe is like a carriage with a light on one side.~
~Notice the little arm patch on the left arm
has a “P”~
~The carved Dutch shoe he is sitting on has carved initials “JBL” or maybe just “BL” on the side~
~Obviously this was created by a master carver~
~An old carved Black forest quill is included, although we don’t know if it was original to the piece~
6”height x 13.25” x 6.75”;
9.25” length of pen/quill.
