From a noble villa in Austria comes this antique bull horn boot jack with antique green velvet fabric and original cattle horns. Bull horn furniture where produced in small workshops in the area of the Austrian alps in the second half of the 19th century. They are very similar to the famous steerhorn furnitures which where produced in Texas in the early 20th century. Unrestored original condition, fabric needs to be renewed.

F. C. Rampendahl who gained enthusiastic successes on several world exhibitions with his antler furniture. In the aftermath one began to manufacture antler furniture in series.
