John J. Gredler Works of Art

German Black Forest Hand Carved Bookshelf

$1,200.00

Call For Location | 203-325-8070


A beautifully carved and well made portable and expandable traveling book shelf. Made to be placed on a table or desk and hold a small library of books, can expand outward to accommodate additional volumes. Carved of walnut by a master craftsman. Each side showing a rustic trellis, a flower with fern-like leaves in front. A circle with an L or V shown twice on the base is likely a signature or makers mark. German or Swiss, late 19th century. I can see this in the room of an alpine ski chateau, or a spa in the Swiss alps, like that in Thomas Mann's 'The Magic Mountain'.  Circa 1890's.

On both end pieces the stem to the lower flower is missing and on one the stem to the budded flower is missing a section. Also a small piece of the flower petal missing. None of it very noticeable. Also some wear of the color in spots.

Measures: 14 inches wide by 6 deep by 7 high 18 in wide when expanded.
