Vintage Taxidermy Weasel on a traditional, natural base

Description

Cute but vicious! I think we all know someone like that! This little weasel is looking for a good home.

A vintage French mount of a least weasel (I would estimate 1960's/1970's) on a traditional base.

The weasel is in a realistic pose, ready to steal unguarded eggs from a nest in the countryside.

I built the base with the weasel in mind, so that it fits well with the contours of the taxidermy piece, using real wood, moss, stones, snailshells, and even a taxidermy beetle! I like these little attentions to detail as they really add to the realism.
The nest and eggs are of course fake, made from woven straw and polystyrene.

There are some slight imperfections with the mount, such as the position of the back legs, and there is an identifying ring on one of the forelegs, which is hidden by the wooden base, however, these are purely cosmetic.
You can remove the weasel from the base if you choose as I have only wired it to the branch.


I have treated the mount with a special taxidermy spray to help keep it in good condition.

Took almost 20 days to come, a little long but i'll manage. Im a little sad though, I was sort of expecting it to be larger and be in a milky glass like the pictures presented. Not to mention that it was a little dirty at the bottom. Best advice I have is to maybe have pics of the item in your hand for comparison. Regardless, I got what i wanted so I cant complain! thanks for the shipment!

Sorry if you were disappointed! It was sent on standard shipping, which obviously took a long time to reach you! Still, the shipping actually cost a little more than the shipping paid for. The measurements were given on the listing and certainly, the appearance of everything can vary in pictures, due to the way the light shines through the resin. Still, I hope it is a lucky scorpion for you(!) and that you enjoy it.
