This monumental Black Forest wine cooler exhibits a truly magnificent level of carving on every surface and embodies the best that this beloved art form has to offer. The intricate carvings covering its exterior are a celebration of the hunt, personified by the proud hunter and stag on the front panel. Standing in an elaborate forest setting, these figures are joined by the almost life-size carving of a rabbit, duck and smaller bird on the lid and the four boars’ heads that serve as the cooler’s feet. The rocky background, strewn with acorns, oak leaves and other foliage, provides the perfect stage for these highly detailed figures. In addition, the lead-lined interior makes this cooler as functional as it is imaginative.

Originating in Switzerland in the mid-1800s, Black Forest is a distinctive European style that exemplifies traditional Swiss folk traditions. Pieces are executed in hardwoods with rich, dark finishes and realistic carving. Motifs ranging from organic foliage to the various animals found in the forest were featured on large furniture items such as benches, hall trees and chairs as well as smaller items like clocks, wall hangings and other objets d’art.
