PAIR 2 Antique English Trophy Hunt Horn Epergne Brass Renaissance Cherub

 

~Direct from England~

~Just arrived in our most recent container, we have several of these fabulous antique ‘hunt horns”, extremely sought after as unique accessories for a library, den or office!.~

 

~History – In 19th century Europe these antique trophies were made to be placed in the bookcase, or atop the mantel or on a desk, as a ‘trophy’ from hunting exploits, rather than the more common practice today of making wall mounts. 

 

~This is a PAIR of horns, with grooved cup brass bases below the shaped flutes with reticulated edge top. FULL figure cherubs with one hand on hip and one outstretched arm that holds the round brass banding for the horn!~
~Brass bands have crimped edges and BIRD FINIALS to tighten the bands~
~Horn tops are rimmed with brass caps have lower draped scalloped edges and upper gothic trim~

~Outstanding curve and colouring to each horn!!~

~c1890~

 

Measurements:

Approx. 16.75”height x 10.5” span x 4”.

Horn is maybe 14”long; base footprint 4” diameter; mouth opening 2.5” x 2”.
