Carved and Painted Deer Head with Real Horns

$3,975.00 USD

This is an early example of a folk-carved and painted deer head on a wall mount.  The artist used original horns to give the carving a natural look.  Along with the carved wooden ears and realistic decoration this looks remarkably like a traditionally stuffed and mounted trophy head.   It measures 28" tall by 18" wide and 14" deep.

The workmanship, materials and fasteners suggest a late 18th Century or early 19th Century date.

Condition is good.  There is an old repair to the base of the right horn (as viewed) and the surface is scuffed with some minor paint loss to the ears, nose and wall mount.

An estimated $75 is included in the price to cover packing, shipping and insurance.
