Black Forest Bear Carving

19th Century. Wood.

Dimensions: height: 17cm; width: 17cm.  £ SOLD

 

A charming and well-carved bear. This bear seems to have been captured either just after a good old scratch or emerging from a winter's sleep, as it is slightly off-balance, with one foot to the side and a little bemused. Definitely a very friendly bear, with an endearing and comical expression.

 

Great fun and a wonderfully decorative object.
