Each of these 19th century Roe Deer trophies is mounted on a beautifully detailed stand. The skull of each trophy has been decorated with a wappen of the Grand Dukes of Baden. The Kingdom of Baden became a Duchy when Napoleon came through in 1806. Since the Baden Royal family did not resist Napoleon, and he stayed in one of their castles for quite a while, he granted them Duchy status (thus, the Grand Dukes and Dukes of Baden). These trophies are part of a larger group of pieces attributed to the Grand Dukes of Baden, a German Duchy which existed from 1806-1918.
Each trophy measures approximately 21" H x 9" D x 6" W. The bases are approximately 6" x 6" square. This grouping includes 13 pieces and pricing is per piece. Favorable pricing can be offered on pairings or groupings. Measurements will vary slightly from piece to piece.
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 document.
