Large Antique Photo Album with Wooden Carved Cover, Brienz ca. 1900

About the Item

Large Antique Photo Album with Wooden Carved Cover, Brienz ca. 1900 A lovely antique photo album featuring a lindenwood carved cover depicting a hunter in alpine enviroment. Handcarved in Brienz, Switzerland around 1900. Inside with several antique photos of Victorian people. Good condition with traces of use according to the old age. One of the brass buckles is missing. The tradition of wood carving, using manual skills to make everyday objects and fine art sculptures, is found throughout Europe. The incentive to create not only useful but also aesthetically beautiful things, distinguishes the craftsman from the artist. In addition to the well-known Swiss wood carving artists, others can also be named in Italy / Tyrol with Steiner, in Germany with Madel and in Austria with Heissl. Their wood-carving art works with sculptures, wall plaques and reliefs enhance any interior design. artfour is an owner-managed trading company dealing in Black Forest woodcarvings, antler furniture and an impressive variety of unique decorative items.
