A marvelous antler vanity with mirror and a ring tray. It was made of wood, veneered with horn pieces, deer antlers and a chamois horn. Executed ca. 1840. (veneer partly restored).
At the beginning of the 19th century the European nobility discovered antler furnishings for their hunting castles and countryseats. The furniture was either manufactured completely from e.g. stag antler, or it was decorated with antler pieces from the stag, deer, fallow deer and others to get a hunting desing. A famous example was the interior design of 'Jagdschloss Platte' (hunting castle Platte) of count William of Nassau near Wiesbaden, Germany in 1825.
