Huge Vintage Fossil Skull of a Bear Encased in a Custom Glass Display Cabinet circa 1970, Original Label

A substantial, boldly mounted vintage bear skull circa 1970 encased in a custom glass box with a wooden frame found in France. The aggressive nature of this deadly animal is visible in the lethal shape of its jawline. Natural artifacts and mounted specimens were of special interest during the nineteenth century to amateur collectors and naturalists who often devoted whole rooms to the display of these items. Alone or as part of a larger grouping this mounted skull has a particularly striking presence. The entire top of the case lifts off the base in order to give the viewer uninhibited access to the bear's head in all its innate beauty. The skull retains its original label.
