Antique late 19th century carved unusual Black Forest extended cat book stand. The stand modelled as twin cats holding their pray at each book end. Each end hinged at the base allowing the stand to be rested flat for storage. The stand extends through the centre by pulling either end to allow more or less books to be added.
Lot Notes: Black Forest carvings are typically seen as forestry and mountanous animals most commonly carved as bears. Black Forest Cat cavings are extremely unusual and highly sought after due to the limited figures that come to the market.
