Some things simply defy categorization, and this specimen is a prime example! Hand-carved by the master sculptors of the Black Forest region, it depicts a mountain goat family nestled in for the night, rendered in stunning realism and detail out of a solid block of dense, old-growth Alpine white oak. The trunk grows upward to flare into oak leaves on the front side, and grapevine-like stems on the back, all holding the original pressed glass bowl to create one of the most intriguing compotes we've ever discovered!
Circa 1870s.
Measures 11H x 9.5W x 6.5D.
