Welcome to the Black Forest Carvings web site. Here you will find and be able to purchase the highest quality examples of new and antique hand crafted wood carvings from the beautiful Bernese Oberland region of Switzerland.
Since the late 19th century this region of Switzerland, centred on the beautiful lakeside village of Brienz, has been renowned for producing the most beautiful, naturalistic woodcarvings in the world. From the world famous Black Forest Bears to Eagles, Dogs, Boars, Stags, Chamois, Steinbock, Cows, Hunters and many other forms the highly skilled woodcarvers in this region have excelled in capturing the very form and essence of their subject.

Although these Swiss woodcarvings are commonly known today as Black Forest they are in fact not from that region at all. The Black Forest, Der Schwarzwald in German, is a beautiful forested area near Freiburg, Germany that stretches down to the Swiss Border and eastwards. This area does not have a tradition of fine woodcarving but examples collected from Switzerland in the 19th and early 20th centuries acquired the title Black Forest and so it has remained to this day. However many discerning worldwide collectors will refer to the woodcarvings as being Brienz.
