No reproduction without prior written consent.We'll be sending out sale notices and special deals to our'Favorites' customers. NOTE: pocket watch is shown only for ambiance and is not included with the carved wood watch holder shown here. Hand carved 19th century Swiss Black Forest pocket watch plaque, wall-mount, beautifully preserved as you can see. The theme of the hunt evident in the owl carved up top.
He's got glass eyes for more real effect, and tiny nips to the tips of his "ears". These served as a night time bedside table item, the pocket watch hanging in use as a night clock and its watch chain also resting in the carved basket. The hook on this one is also carved in wood, fully intact. If you've followed us for a while you know I'm a big fan of the old hand carved "Black Forest" items that come to us from 19th century Switzerland, Germany, parts of France and Italy, where they pleased the Grand Tour tourists and still please us all today. These hand carved treasures range from whimsical small bears to large and elaborate mantel clocks, wall clocks, wall plaques showing the most awesome anatomical studies of stag, fowl, "fruits of the hunt".
I've got more to list so look through the vast collection. I've just used quite a few piece in our own 2nd home decoration , Rocky Mountains location, and love the look as well as the heritage since my own ancestors hail from that region and others.
The pieces work well in Country Manor, French Country, Ski Lodge or Hunt Lodge and even in a den or office. Everything from a pocket watch case to huge plaques - from needle and thread holders to cigar caddy - these decorative objects survive today a testament to the artisan's craft of carving wood.
Very good to excellent condition for age and type. I can see a tip on each of the owl's "ears" is chipped off. Otherwise I see nothing by way of a flaw to report.
The measurements appear on the photos. The hook for the watch is carved wood, original as you see it. We're easy to deal with.Our fine inventory is very important.
