Description
These very good quality carvings are no doubt intended as a set being a pipe rest and a match holder, but they also stand nicely as separate figures. They are probably walnut, at least a dark wood with an attractive slightly open and wavy grain. They are not marked except that the male figure has "Paul" written in pencil on the base. The man stands leaning against a rock, holding an alpine horn in his right hand. He is wearing a linen shirt, a short tunic and lederhosen. The woman in churning butter with two baskets beside her. She is wearing a skirt with a laced bodice and a bustle, and she has a neckscarf and her hair is in braids. Very attractive and tactile carvings
