Anri carving Girl

anri1

You’re looking at a hand carved figure of a girl riding a skateboard, or at least, sitting on it while breaking in some new bowling shoes. It dates back to an undetermined point in the 70’s, and was carved for the highly collected Swiss company called Anri. Actually, it’s hard to tell where the company is located. There’s no address listed anywhere, and the history page talk of the Swiss Alps and a region of Austria-Hungary that was annexed by Italy. So maybe it’s Italian. The ANRI history goes back to 1919, so that might explain why this carving sold for $65.

Alternate view of this expertly carved but awkwardly posed figure.

  1. ANRI is located in Tyrol which is in Northern Italy and you are correct that it was annexed. The history and much of the culture is German/Austrian in that region. If you have a picture of the logo on the bottom, we might be able to give you a more accurate date.

    • Thanks, unfortunately I don’t have a photo of the bottom, nor access to the original item. Thanks for the offer.
