Antique French Carved Black Forest Trunk with Needlepoint, Circa 1900

From France, this beautifully hand carved trunk has a needlepoint center panel attached with brass nail heads.  Where the nailheads would not be seen, there are regular nails holding the needlepoint to the body. The hand carved wooden motifs and needlepoint pattern are reminiscent of the forest, with floral, foliate, and a ground of stylized wooden tree trunk panels. Linear, stylized branches surround the side and back panels.  The carving is in keeping with that on Black Forest antiques.  The inside of the trunk is open with no additional pieces.

CONDITION: Good antique condition with rubs to outer edges of wood. There is minor fraying to section where needlepoint as been cut.  There are four holes on the bottom of the trunk where feet may have been.
