Victorian Taxidermy-Horse Hoof door porter Dated 1881

£ 750

The silver-plated door stop inscribed “STAGHUNTER Sept 1881” with a much later inscription “Bro Fred from BUFF 1923” presumably a later gift to his brother.
It would be easy to attribute this to this door stop to the famous Victorian taxidermists Rowland Ward of London, as it is similar to another, we have in stock by RW, however this example, has subtle differences, it is heavier, and constructed in a different manner, I would suggest a London competitor, the quality is outstanding, and if I dare say in some ways even better than Ward.
