Set of Three Victorian Antler Parlor Chairs, Austria ca. 1880
Item e4949

The three very rare antler parlor chairs are made of stag antlers and fallow deer antlers, with feet carved as lions claws. Made in Austria, ca. 1880 - the old green covering has to be renewed.

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.
