These remarkably detailed Black Forest carved door porters, each in the form of a begging spaniel standing on a cushion, cheerfully greet visitors. Exquisitely rendered, the delightful pooches display the outstanding artistry and creativity of the Black Forest style.

Originating in Germany and experiencing its "golden age" in the mid-19th century, Black Forest is a distinctive European style that embodies German folk traditions. Realistic and expressive animals executed in hardwoods with rich, dark finishes are common subjects of this artform. Forest motifs ranging from foliage to animals were incorporated into large furniture, household objects and decorative objets d’art by the master Black Forest carvers, who created charming and distinctive works that remain admired to this day.
