This historic grouping of 19th c Austrian Roe Deer trophies are each mounted on an original, Black Forest plaque with painted heraldic crests below the cap. The crests are from noble families of Austria, and there are three styles available. The first is a split crest with a black field and white diagonal stripe on one side and a red field with a black cross. The second is a split crest with an orange field and crown in the upper portion and a black field with three white crescents in the lower portion. Last is a green field with a griffon head. There are 21 total piece available in the grouping, five of the red and black, ten of the orange and black, and six of the green.
Plaques measure 6.5"W x 9.5"H each and the total height of each ranges from 13" - 15" from the bottom edge of the plaque to the tips of the antlers.
Plaques are all original with a single wire hanger on the back (shown) for hanging. The full cap trophies are in various conditions, but mostly good with some caps having minor losses. The plaques are patinated with surface wear present. Some of the plaques have some gilt accents around the heraldic badges.
