Vintage African Rack of Waterbuck Horns on a Custom Mount France circa 1940

A vintage rack of African Waterbuck Horns on a custom mount from France circa 1940. The distinctive shape of the horns and the pronounced ridges give these horns their graphic impact. The elegant shape of the skull is mirrored by the custom carved oak timber mount as the profile of the mount follows the same shape. Of course hunting has been a centuries long pursuit and the wildlife found in Africa exerted an irresistibly  exotic pull from European and American hunters since the nineteenth centuries and trophies such as this example continue to be proudly displayed in homes and offices as a reminder of an earlier age in contrast to modern sensibilities.
