About

Beautiful quality and perfect condition, antique bear desk piece. This Black Forest bear is carved in a beautiful pose. This rare, early 1900s desk piece is the perfect pen or pencil holder and it is handcrafted antiques like this that keep our work interesting and rewarding. Also, because we know that this rare and good quality Swiss bear is going to make somebody's desk or table look extra special. This piece we actually found in its country of origin, but we expect it to grace one of our American client's homes soon. With the flag of California holding a bear, it could very well find a new home there, but there are also people from other states that, for good reasons, think highly of bear related items. Especially ones that are over one hundred years of age. This particularly fine and superb condition specimen even comes with its original glass eyes. This handcarved, stylish and highly decorative antique is great value for money. Especially when taken into account that our fair price includes perfect packing and also worldwide delivery from our store to your door in just 4 days. Maximum height x diameter of the base 9.05 x 5 inches. We have a passion for the unique, for quality, for stylish and artistic and for craftsmanship of years gone by. Your purchases will be extremely well packaged and we look forward to serving you (again). You can shop all our 1000+ listings by pushing the button that reads 'View All From Seller'.
