Superb antique Victorian Black Forest carved folder
Here we have a top quality Victorian Black Forest carved folder in very good condition overall.
The folder has carved wood back and front panels, a leather spine and measures ca 30x23cms.
The carved wood front and rear panels are exceptionally well done and the front oval features a pair of Ibex or possibly mountain sheep on rocks. The rest of the front panel and all of the rear is carved with an attractive bark design.
Inside the folder is a 3 part compartment to the left for correspondence and a pocket to the right which hold the blotter.
Internally condition is very good with wear consistent with age and externally the leather spine is sound. The front oval carving is of excellent quality with only one repair to the front leg of the lower animal.
Overall an exceptionally nice piece of Black Forest workmanship.
