Black Forest 1880s Swiss Compote with Hand Carved Birds, Tree and Foliage

About

A Swiss Black Forest compote from the late 19th century, with hand carved birds and foliage. Born in Switzerland in the later years of the 19th century, this charming wooden compote features a luscious tree, supporting an upper bowl made of oak leaves. A central oak leaf, adorned with acorns, decorates the upper part of the trunk. Its missing acorn may explain the presence of the two quails pecking the ground below. With its skillfully hand carved decor and lovely patina, this Swiss Black Forest compote circa 1880 will bring a touch of rustic authenticity to any tabletop, commode or buffet.
