    History of Black Forest. In the 1800€™s the wood carving industry of Switzerland started in the town of Brienz. By the end of the 1800€™s it had become the driving force for this industry. Swiss wood carvers became world renown and featured at many international exhibitions. Black Forest Carvings were spotlighted.
    * Great Exhibition, London (1851)
    * Centennial Exhibition, Philadelphia (1876)
    * Chicago Worlds Fair, Chicago (1893)
    * Exposition Universelle, Paris (1900)
    In Europe Black Forest carvings (wares) became a symbol of luxury and wealth. The finest pieces of Black Forest carving were often found in Royal collection and elite collector€™s homes (usually Victorian world travellers).
    During the 1800-1900€™s popularity was also growing in many overseas markets. There was a high demand for these carving especially depicting American Wildlife.
    This Mirror is of superior quality and remains in original condition, an absolutely wonderful piece of Black Forest History.
