A very unusual vintage taxidermy piece originating from France and dating from the 1940's. This fantastic boars foot hunting trophy has been converted into a pot or holder, although I'm not sure exactly what the intended use for this was, I think it may at one time have held a cigarette lighter.
The foot is in excellent vintage condition and the pot has recently been cleaned and is probably silver (Continental silver doesn't have a hallmark).
This unusual and fascinating item and would make an interesting container for a desk or shelf.
The foot stands approx. 10 cm tall.
