Black Forest Dog and Cat Hall Stand

A carved walnut hall stand modeled as a long-haired terrier chasing a frightened cat up a tree, circa 1870. Hall stands carved from walnut are exceptionally rare as it was such an expensive wood usually reserved for objects d'art and highly important commissioned pieces. Using walnut produces a finer detailed carving and a highly polished finish. This hallstand has been pictured in Swiss Carvings the art of the black forest by Daniels and Arenski 2005 - Page 112. And, in Fantasy Furniture by Bruce E Newman 1989 - Page 129.
