Product Description

A stunning ‘pre-taxidermy’ cast for a Red deer…

This is such a stunning and unique piece!. This is a cast of a wild Red Dear being prepared for taxidermy. Of French origin and dating to around the mid 20th century, this beautiful piece is an art form in itself…

The head of the deer is cast in plaster readied for the skin of the deer to be fitted. The neck is made with wood and then covered in a hessian and rope finish, to form the neck structure of the deer. The antlers, which are impressive on their own have been pre-fixed to the head cast to form the top section (these are original). To finish the piece off, it has been mounted on a large wooden shield…

This is the only example we have ever seen like this and certainly one that we simply couldn’t walk past. The day we found this, it was being admired by many – we were fortunate to be able to own it first…

This would make a great statement piece in your home or your work place. With eight points on the antlers they look striking and imposing, and would make a great central decorative feature. The signature look is above the fireplace or mantelpiece, but wherever you place them they will cause some great talking points. There is a pre-drilled metal hook on the reverse for ease of hanging on a wall…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. The antlers are structurally great and mounted safely and secure. There is the odd surface scar or scrape to the shield and antlers, but very minimal. There are some tatty areas within the hessian area, yet we feel the condition simply adds to the authenticity. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…

A truly ‘one off’ piece!
