Product Description

A beautiful antique Oryx shoulder mount…

An Oryx is a genus consisting of four large antelope species. Three of them are native to arid parts … The horns are narrow, and straight except in the scimitar Oryx, where they curve backwards like a scimitar

Although we are unsure of the exact age of this piece, we believe that it would date to the mid part of the 20th century. That said, it does have an ‘antique nature to it’, therefore this could even be earlier. This piece is just stunning! A full shoulder mount taxidermy with the statement horns protruding from the Orxy’s head. They are striking in appearance and ooze authenticity. These are easily ready to be wall mounted with the pre-made hole on the rear of the Oryx. Although the piece is structurally good, there are a few tatty areas that may require a little touching up. That said, we actually love it as it is…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is natural wear and tear. The horns are in good condition given their age and structurally secure on the shoulder mount. There are some rough edges and surface abrasions, some fur loss and some tatty areas. There are a few cracks and losses to the head and ears (as pictured), so please expect that there will be imperfections. That said, these are beautiful in the flesh and ooze charm and authenticity. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…
