Black Forest, Bavarian Wood Carvings

Bavaria, one of Germany’s largest states, is home to some of the most beautiful and striking woodlands. The Black Forest is a constant source of inspiration for artisans and our Bavarian book slide is no exception. The end panels to the book slide depict incredibly ornate carvings of the Chamois found in the Black Forest. This decorative piece has its origins intrinsically placed throughout the details.

Perhaps a more unusual piece is our Bavarian bear liqueur stand. This piece has a great sense of fun and doubles up as a talking point for you and your guests. Each glass has been hand cut and made to perfect proportions, sliding into place on each outstretched branch. Along with these items we also have a Bavarian Cuckoo clock which was rescued by its owner in 1915, during the First World War. Complete with a sweet birdsong, this clock is guaranteed to be a winner with the children and can be found in our warehouse or website.
