A large antique taxidermy Waterbuck mount by Rowland Ward.
A stunning mount by arguably the most noted & talented taxidermist of all time, the imposing male Waterbuck horns on a solid oak sheild, finished with its original engraved ivorine plaque. Retaining its original paper label verso for Rowland Ward, Ther Jungle, 166 Piccadilly.
The Waterbuck is a large antelope endemic to Southern Africa, it takes its name from both its heavy dependance on water when compared with other antelopes & also its ability to enter water as a means of defence.
Late 19th century.
Wear commensurate with age, very good overall.
