Hand Carved Black Forest Bear Sculpture Hand or Vanity Mirror with Beveled Edge

$931.77

About

Finer quality carved, wooden Black Forest hand mirror, circa 1890-1910 If you are a collector of only the finer quality Black Forest bear antiques then this hand mirror could be the perfect addition to your collection. This antique bear is balancing on a wooden tree trunk and he is holding the beveled mirror for you. His right hand, at some point in time, has been 'reconstructed' and that probably was done at the same time when the excellent condition and beveled oval mirror was replaced. This rare antique has the most wonderful patina and with at least 100 years of age it is incredible to be in this condition still. The original glass eyes and the original red painted tongue and white teeth are the perfect finish to this skillfully carved and intricate bear mirror. As so often is the case, this rare antique too is much better looking in real life than in our photos. This fine antique makes a great gift for yourself or for a loved one and with perfect packing and worldwide delivery in just 4 to 6 days included in our already sharp price, this rare find is great value for money. Maximum height x width x depth when closed: 12.9 x 5.1 x 1.2 inches. We have a passion for the unique, for quality, for stylish yet practical and for craftsmanship of years gone by. Your purchases will be extremely well packaged and we look forward to serving you (again).
