Product Description

A really cool cow head and horns…

Although we are unsure of the exact age of this piece, we believe it could date to mid part of the 20th century onwards. We actually have no provenance on this piece unfortunately, therefore we think this could have been a one off carving or maybe just an artists’ piece. What we can tell you is that it is a charming piece, and one that gives an alternative to the more common taxidermy horns or antlers…

The cow, hand carved in a soft wood stretches to 80cm in width, making this a statement piece for a bare wall. The naive build is appealing, as is the paint work. Added with the weathered patina and tatty areas, this really is a cool piece of alternative decor. The cow almost ‘comic like’, still looks quite realistic when caught at the right angle…

There’s no rot or signs of woodworm, therefore with a little clear bees’ wax or may a polish, this would look pukka in your home or workplace…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is natural wear and tear. The cow head is good structurally, with some surface scuffs, abrasions and paint chipping. You’ll note that the ends of the horns are a little tatty, with one notably exposing more wood that paint. We feel this simply adds to it charm and authenticity. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
