This is made in the Tyrol as a luxury souvenir in the late 19th c. The Tyrol was a popular destination in the late 19th and early 20th c. The families who went there usually staid for weeks at the time and this created a souvenir industry that created pieces like this.
The quality is wonderful. It is carved from fruitwood, probably pear wood.
