19th Century Black Forest Carved Wood Dog Motif Velvet Lined Casket with Key

$2,750

About

This 19th century Black Forest carved wood lockable casket has an oval shape and is topped with hinged lid featuring a fully dimensional carved spaniel with glass eyes. The dog has been depicted posed atop two rocks amongst vegetation with its mouth open and head turned to the left. The carved decoration at the center of the lid is bordered by a relief foliate band. The piece comes with its original key and rests on four scrolling feet. The lid lifts to reveal an oval interior compartment lined in blue velvet edged with rope detail. The wooden exterior of the base is finished with a carved design consisting of heart-shaped leaves growing along curvilinear vines, all of which are set on a textured ground. There is also a repeating carved geometric border which runs around the base. The box is in very good original condition and has not undergone any repairs or restoration. The lid of the box sits squarely on the base and is securely attached to the body of the piece, and the locking mechanism is fully functional. As an antique, the piece shows appropriate signs of age consisting of minor nicks and scratches to the wood. The velvet lining found in the interior has slight discoloration but no rips/tears. The box stands 6.25" tall to the top of the dog's head and measures 8" by 5.5" from the outermost points of the base. The interior oval compartment measures 6" by 3.5" and is just under 1.5" deep. This charming hand carved wood casket displays beautifully and would be a great addition to a collection of fine Black Forest carving. It is a perfect choice for storing and locking away special treasures, or could be used as an heirloom ring box for an engagement or wedding ceremony. A lovely piece of craftsmanship.
