This is a really rare and unusual taxidermy deer’s foot. I suspect that the ornate end is silver but I have not tested it so can’t be sure. During the last century, deer’s feet were made into useable items such as knives and letter openers so I suspect that this is a tool of some sort, however, I can’t find anything remotely like it anywhere! The toes seem strangely far apart so I am wondering whether this is some sort of prising tool.
This could definitely make an excellent talking point to sit on your sideboard.
Due to the complicated laws regarding the export of animal products, this item is only available to purchase in Europe.
