I am tryin to find out more about this awesome piece it looks like rcmp officers on the very top (and i noticed that one of them is missing his head) and a moose there is a dog and a duck and 2 little open baskets that are open and are attached with wire in the back it is approx 12 inches tall and 5 inches wide
Reminds me of ornamentation on Black Forest cuckoo clocks.
I found your item on eBay. http://ebay.to/2wdgXfd It is a match holder that they would hang by a fireplace in a hunting lodge. It would go back to a patent around 1876. It shows a deer, pheasant and a rabbit. The bag in front represents the hunter's bag to store his catch. This would store the long wooden matches for the fireplace or a celebration cigar. Just threw that in there. Its too bad one of your hunters lost its head but it is a very nice antique cast iron figure.
thank you so much
