A rare and charming Black Forest wood carving of a life size spaniel holding a branch configured to hang coats or hats on. This piece also incorporates a cane or umbrella stand. Pieces like these were carved over the long winter and sold to tourists at the Bern Zoo over the summer. This tradition carried on from second part of the 19th century into the early 20th century. We love the quality of carving and the rich amber glass eyes. The dog is large and the overall height is about 7 feet.
