Product Description

An interesting and unique piece of taxidermy…

Although we are unsure of the exact age of this piece, we believe it could date to the mid part of the 20th century onwards. What we can tell you for sure is that this is an impressive piece! Extending around 1 metre in height, this piece is striking in appearance. A deer head has been mounted on a wooden shield and then covered in seaside shells. We are not sure why? This could have been a commission for someone or maybe it could have been a project by an artist?. Either way, we’ve never seen anything like it and we are in love!

The deer head is mounted well on a wooden plaque and quite cleverly, someone has added some White paint to give the plaque a ‘marble effect’. It’s genius, as from a distance you’d think it was actually a marble backing what the head is attached too. This piece simply looks elegant when protruding from the wall in our showroom. Whist not everyone loves seeing the raw nature of a piece of taxidermy, this could form an alternative piece of decor or even art for ones wall…

This is a huge piece of taxidermy, and has been done with considerable care. Naturally there are some surface scars and scuffs, but overall this is a fine piece that would look brilliant graced above a fireplace or indeed protruding from a wall in retail environment. Please note the ‘ready made’ hook on the reverse, making this piece easy to be wall hung…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is natural wear and tear. The entire piece is in good condition given its age, and it is structurally secure on the wooden shield. There are some rough edges and surface abrasions, and some tatty and weathered areas. That said, this is beautiful in the flesh and oozes charm and authenticity. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
