Antique Black Forest Coffret-Hand Carved Songbirds-Rare and Elegant Gift   Antique Black Forest Coffret-Hand Carved Songbirds-Rare and Elegant Gift
This is an Antique Black Forest Coffret made in Switzerland in the late 1800's. It is hand carved from walnut with a pair of songbirds on the lid and carved panels of flowers and foliage on the sides and front. The lid opens to reveal two small compartments that swivel to the sides. Below them is a larger compartment. The compartments all have the original silk fabric, French knot tuck and tufted lining in very good condition for their age. The key may be original as it was with the box when we found it. It works to smoothly lock the coffret. It has four pedestal feet, all original.

It measures 7.5 inches tall to the top of the carved birds with the base around the carved feet being 4 inches by 7 inches. It weighs 1 pound, 8 ounces.

Antique Black Forest Coffrets are old, rare, and fragile. Even more rare is to find one in which the carvings show so little damage. Even one fall is all it takes to permanently damage the carvings. This one is probably one of the most perfect we have found.

Please take a minute and look closely at the photos. You will see a tiny chip out of the lower bird's tail and small chip out of the tip of the foliage spike. We could find no other flaw, including all the carved foliage panels on the front and sides. This is an extraordinary find. We offer it as one of the finest small Black Forest Coffrets we have ever been able to make available.

We invite your close inspection and serious offer. This item is in the category "Collectibles\Decorative Collectibles\Sculptures & Figurines".
