A 19th Century Carved & Decorated Wooden Stag's Head

Status: This item has been sold
Sold by: Culvertons

This antique has been viewed 8 times in the past month with the most views from France.

Description

The uniformity of the stag horns chosen to mount this unusual carved mahogany deers' head and the robust fixing points suggest to me this may have been a decorative rack for a hunting rifle (s). The carving has Chinese or Persian influences but the mahogany deer's head is more reminiscent of eurpopean design & craftmanship - I would suggest that this was 'possibly' the product of a collaboration between the two, possibly for a country house or colonial client.
A part of the one of the ears has been replaced and one re-attached. There are also early witness marks between the eyes of a previous fixing point. However the head's colour is particularly attractive as is the horns patina.
Whenever possible Culvertons undertake the carriage of items within London and the home counties. Professional, competitive and trusted couriers and shipping companies are engaged for deliveries for the remainder of our customers. Smaller items, when instructed, will be carefully parcelled and securely sent by carrier.
We do strive to accurately describe and illustrate our stock within the 'Selling Antiques' website. However, we do understand that it is not always possible to judge from photographs how an item will look within the home or garden. For this reason, if notified within seven days from date of delivery we offer a full refund (less any agreed carriage costs) once the item has been returned.
