Brienz, Bernese Oberland

Brienz, in the Bernese Oberland, Switzerland was remarked upon in Baedeker's Travel Guide, as having a population of 2400, of whom 600 persons were employed as woodcarvers, to supply the tourist trade to Switzerland with mementos of the tour. A museum devoted entirely to the art of wood carving may be visited today.
'Swiss Carvings, The Art of the Black Forest' by Arenski, Daniels and Daniels, published by The Antique Collectors Club 2004 shows similar pieces p62-64 71-71. We have a catalogue of a selection of works by Peter Trauffer of Lucerne, which shows and almost identical tobacco pot under item 2083.
