Vintage Taxidermy, Mounted Fox Mask.
This prepared fox head is mounted on a good quality oak shield with writing to reverse. Unlike many other taxidermie this fox mask is quiet pleasing to the eye with its sleek and narrow face and with the mouth closed, rather than the snarling pose that many have.
All we can make out on the back board is 'Cressage Park 1945'. Cressage is a village and civil parish in Shropshire, England, and the River Severn flows around its northern boundary.
