Swiss Black Forest Presentation Carved Wooden Cup with Figures c.1890
Secure Payments By
This superb carved and turned cup has a cover adorned with figures of a girl and boy, she sitting on a rock outcrop and he standing. The border of the cover and the cup itself is carved with stylised leaves and other decorative borders. The wood is a stained close grained wood, probably limewood. We expect that this cup was a presentation cup possibly for a wedding or engagement. It is not marked. A very fine and unusual example of Swiss wood carving.
Total height 30 cm. Cup without cover 15 cm tall, width of rim 11.5 cm.
Chester's Farm Antiques has clarified that the Swiss Black Forest Presentation Carved Wooden Cup with Figures c.1890 (LA360657) is genuinely of the period declared with the date/period of manufacture being c1890
Generally very good antique condition. The cup has one closed shrinkage crack and the base of the cover shows another shrinkage crack - these cracks are almost to be expected in a cup of this age.
