  • Habsburg Red Stag Trophy of Emperor Franz Josef from Eckartsau Castle

  • $1,495.00

  • 19th century Austrian fallow deer trophy on original Black Forest carved plaque that hung in Emperor Franz Josef's castle at Eckartsau in the Southern Austrian Alps. Eckartsau was a favourite hunting schloss of the Habsburg family. The plaque itself is an original, hand-carved plaque in a classic Black Forest theme including oak leaves on each side of the plaque and a large badge at the bottom (these areas would often be used to add writing or a date for the trophy). The cap also features an elaborate military Wappen with the German words "Gott, Ehre, Vaterland" which translates to "God, Honor, Fatherland".

    Plaque measures 12" H x 10.5" W. Total height is 34", antler spread is 26" and the antler depth is 19.5" (to the wall).

    Part of The European Hunt collection, this collection of antique hunting trophies has been examined and appraised by James Supp of Coronado Trading Co., who is best known for his work with the PBS production "Antiques Roadshow." All pieces in this collection have been examined and appraised and come with a Certificate of Authenticity.
