Antique Black Forest carved bear hall chair armchair, 19th century, circa 1875 Magnificent Swiss 19th century Black Forest carved bear hall chair circa 1875, the bear standing on his hind legs looking to his left with his mouth open showing teeth and tongue with a bewildered look in his eyes, his front paws outstretched holding the chair arms simulating branches and leaves, the carved seat with carved bark design legs, furniture carved in and around Bern, Switzerland during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, commonly identified by its use of carved bears and other creatures of the forest, such as deer and birds. Bear furniture originally began as a hobby for the Swiss family of cabinetmakers and wood-carvers named Trauffer. The linden tree was preferred for most furniture as it is easy to carve, but walnut was also widely used. Condition report: The bear chair is offered in good original condition, the seat upholstery is tired and needs recovering, no signs of past or present woodworm, age related marks, overall a very impressive Black Forest bear with wonderful character and personality, extremely rare.
