Grotesque Animal Paw from 1937
This is a strange grotesque looking animal paw dating from, I presume, a hunt in 1937. I don’t quite know what animal this came from. It looks as though there was originally brown fur all over the paw which has now come away leaving only a little near the silver metal top. It is in a poor state of repair.
The top of the casing is marked N.F.H. 2nd Nov 1937 and very oddly, has a ring which it looks as though the paw was suspended from something, but I don’t know in what capacity – a pendant, from an ornament of some kind?This strange taxidermy item measures approx. 10cm in length including the silver metal top.
