A Swiss Black Forest wooden bracket from the late 19th century, with hand-carved eagle and oak leaves. Born in Switzerland in the later years of the 19th century, this exquisite wall bracket features a majestic hand-carved eagle, spreading his wings, ready to take off from the branch on which he was resting. The lower section of the base presents a triangular arrangement of oak branches with their leaves and acorns. The shaped top is a more recent addition, possibly 50 years old. With its exquisite hand-carved décor and lovely patina, this Swiss Black Forest wall bracket circa 1890 will bring a rustic touch to any home and will look wonderful particularly in a country home or mountain cabin.
