Just a stunning antique Black Forest Bear Stand for your cigars, tobacco with built in humidor! This lovely piece was built in the late 1800s to early 1900s. The bear head is hinged and opens up to use as a humidor with a large bowl/ashtray held up by his hand. Have not seen another one just like it.
"Black Forest" is a term used to describe the elaborate, realistic wood carvings that were thought to be made in the Black Forest region of Bavaria, Germany. In the 1980s, new research proved that the carvings were done in Switzerland, most by the Trauffer family. It is easy to identify pieces. Bears that play instruments, climb trees, hold benches or beg are part of the legs, seats and stands that make up the furniture. Each bear was carved from a linden or walnut tree trunk. Pieces were not signed.
