A wonderful antique taxidermy horse hoof table lamp by Rowland Ward.
An exceptional & rare taxidermy table lamp by arguably the finest taxidermy outfit of all time, Rowland Ward.
The lamp would have been made as a memento mori or keepsake for the beloved lost horse 'Confidence' by a wealthy Victorian family & the hoof itself is beautifully engraved 'Confidence, 10th May 1885'. The hoof is finished with custom made silver plated brass hardware with a phenomenal amount of detail with both the upper part & horse shoe marked for Rowland Ward, Naturalists, 166 Piccadilly.
A beautiful & poignant piece of the absolute highest quality.
Wear commensurate with age, good original condition, wear to the plated finish in places.
Further images can be found on our own website (link below).
In working order, wiring in a twisted faun flex & a recent addition though not added by us & we therefor advise a check and / or installation of any electrical items by a qualified electrician prior to use.
UK courier service available at £13 tracked & signed for 24 hour delivery.
