Black Bear Trophy

A cool ‘life like’ Black bear head mounted on a shield, circa latter part of the 20th century…

SKU: RC0718.

Product Description

A rather unusual Black bear head…

Although we are unsure of the exact age of this piece, we think it could date to latter part of the 20th century, circa 1990s. We understand that this was originally used as a prop, and what a striking piece it is. A large Black bears’ head is attached to a large wooden shield, like that of a piece of taxidermy. The ‘life like’ resemblance to the bear is uncanny, yet there’s also quite a comical look to the face if you catch it at the right angle…

Although the piece is quite weighty, the wooden shield is actually made from MDF (we think), and the bear head itself is possibly a ‘rubberised’ material. It’s soft to touch, yet not hollow inside. Close up, the detailing to the bears’ facial features and hair are brilliant. Added with a little wear and tear, this is a charming piece and it would look ace graced on a wall in ones home, or of a course a retail setting. It would certainly cause a few talking points!

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. There are some surface scars and abrasions to the bear head and the shield, yet nothing we would say major. We feel the current used condition simply adds to its charm and authenticity. We think this is a ‘one off’ piece… Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
