This is a pair of antlers with an incomplete deer skull. This is a found object, the story I was told is the original owner loved to hike and explore, and had quite a collection of found objects, including arrowheads. Me, I can't find my keys in my house, so I admire anyone who can find objects of nature. It's a 5 point (western method) and the antlers show some typical small chips, but are solid and in excellent shape. The skull itself is missing the bottom jaw, nose, and has some looser parts to it. There is also some red on one of the antlers, minerals from the soil perhaps? (please see last picture). I will show great care when packing, and it will ship Parcel Post due to the size, so please allow extra time for receipt. This is a stunning, found item.
Width at widest point is approx. 19 1/2"-height is approx. 16." Front to back is approx. 16." The skull itself is approx. 10 1/2" long from the former nose to the top and 5" wide. Skulls aren't the easiest thing to measure. PLEASE NOTE-I'm unable to ship this internationally as it wouldn't make it through customs.
Thanks for looking, and if you have any questions please ask. For more rustic home decor items, please note below:http://www.etsy.com/shop/Modred12?section_id=7007711
