BLACK FOREST HUNTER
An extremely well executed wood carving of a 'stalking hunter' in the Black Forest manner, but probably more likely done in the Brienz area of Switzerland c.1900.

Unsigned and although not to the the highest quality of say... Johann Huggler, it nevertheless captures the character of the hunter ....the detail and concentration in the facial expression is wonderful.

It stands 14 inches high, and the base measures 10 by 4 inches.

Ref: R/0614/TT
Price: £795

18TH CENTURY BRONZE HEAD OF BUDDHA
A nice example of an 18th, possibly 17th, Century 'fragmented' head of the Buddha (Shakyamuni).

With some wear, notably, to the top of the 'enlightened flame', it still retains an unaltered rich patina.

Mounted on a shaped marble base.

It measures 6 1/2 inches high ( excl base, which measures roughly 3 1/2 inches square )
Maximum width 4 inches

Ref: R/XX14/FS
