This is a wonderfully realistic and beautifully hand-carved solid wood Brienz/Black Forest bear. the bear dates to around 1900. Its exhibits a beautiful deep brown, toffee-like patina.This rare and skillfully carved bear measures 40 cm high with a 15 cm arm span. its weighs 2,1 kg.
Condition: The bear is in overall very good condition for its age with truly a beautiful patina. There was also a thin drying split down from his face. which has also been filled historically .These are all old faults and do not distract in any way from the overall look of the bear, which is very impressive.
Documentatie: Swiss Carvings, the art of the "Black Forest", 1820-1940.
