This late 19th century Black Forest pair of finely carved linden wood figure groups depict two family groups of Ibex and Chamois each with a male and female with their young.
They are both standing on a naturalistic rock terrain.
This pair of figures are superbly carved in a typical style of pieces produced in the Brienz area of Switzerland. Each one is carved from one solid piece of linden wood which is the timber renowned for its ability to be carved in such great detail, retaining strength in delicate work.
Both of these pieces have inset glass eyes.
