Any idea where this was carved? I might well err, but I do doubt rather that such accomplished work was possible in the Cape itself. I’d bet this was carved in the Netherlands.

Hello Van Nostrand,

Ek sien nou die blad. Ek kan uitvind waar die kansel gemaak is, maar sover ek weet is dit deur Anton Anreich hier in Kaapstad gemaak.
