A late 19th century Black Forest finely carved linden wood figure of a chamois depicted on naturalistic rocky terrain, the fine carving typical of the superb work produced in the Brienz area of Switzerland.
The small village of Brienz in The Swiss Alps is renowned for superbly and finely carved linden wood figures of farm and domestic animals that integrated into Swiss life as well as many other types of carvings. 
The carvings from the Brienz region were known for being superbly naturalistic and realistic with wonderful depiction of fur, feathers etc. and from being carved from one piece of wood, often from lime or linden wood. These figures are finely carved with superb detail of their fur, faces, legs and tails etc. and this being typical of Black Forest carved figures.
This figure is in excellent condition for age, is of stable construction and can go straight into a home.
Height: 24.75'' / 63cm
