The details reveal it was probably commissioned for an aristocrat’s hunting lodge, circa 1880, and carved in the Black Forest region of Europe, where France, Germany and Switzerland meet.
The ornate crown features carved, scalloped designs surrounding a dimensional carved stag head with antlers and meticulous details to the stag head.
