I was so lucky to have this stunning taxidermy mounted sheep’s head offered to me by a private seller a while ago. I rather fell in love with him so have taken quite a while to offer him for sale.
Although this piece appears very goat-like, he is a sheep. Jacobs sheep, as taxidermy specimens, are rare and there seem to be very few for sale in the UK at the current time. So, this makes him very special.
‘Jacob’ is very ‘Gothic’ in appearance and for some, this may conjure up images of dark arts and mysterious rituals. However, despite his slightly macabre appearance, I have found him to be very placid and utterly gorgeous and it has been a pleasure to have him sit on the wall beside me for the last few months.
His unusual appearance would make him a fantastic addition to a Gothic environment, perhaps even for theatrical use.
Like all my taxidermy items, this Jacob’s Sheep is vintage (this one is very possibly antique). This is to ensure that I haven’t played any part in any animal’s death and I feel that I am just recycling what is already there.
The condition is very good, considering his age, and I believe him to originate from early to mid-20th century. I can see no bare places or damage to the head itself. The mouth may have opened a little over the years. The shield shaped mount is worn in places and shows its age, but I believe this all adds to the uniqueness of the piece.
Because I offer free deliveries for any orders over £50, this will be delivered free of charge within the UK. I am very sorry, but I can’t offer this item for sale outside of the UK at the present time.
If you have any questions at all or would like extra photos taken I would be really pleased to do this for you.
A stunning and unique piece of vintage, possibly antique, taxidermy.
