Swiss Brienz Black Forest Carved 2 Bear Hall & Umbrella Stand 1880

This gorgeous hand-carved hall stand came from the Belknap estate in Louisville, Ky. They lived in a grand estate landscaped by Frederick Law Olmstead and traveled extensively in the late 19th century. I’m sorry I can’t get a portrait-length photo of this but I can’t get far enough away in my small apartment for a full shot. It is seven feet tall. The finish is original and has not been tampered with. There is a place for umbrellas and a mirror. Both the large bear and baby bear have glass eyes. Sadly one branch has come off at the seam, it would be an easy repair. Other than that there is almost no breakage, even the teeth are there.
