Butcher's Exterior Shop Sign of a Steer Head

Antique French wooden steer's head,used as the exterior sign of a butcher’s shop (in French they would call it a boucherie). The sign must be over a hundred years old,still has his original paint,a great patina and nice age cracks.The horns, the underside of the chin and the middle of the head are painted in ivory white and the rest of the bull's head is covered in a brown-reddish color. Considering its age,the external usage and the fact that it survived two World Wars,it's in pretty good shape.

For COLLECTIT! by SPECTANDUM owner Guy Kuypers, the history of his collecting began at the Porte de Clignancourt in Paris with a Napoleon III case filled with Exotic Birds. The colorful birds piqued my imagination and became the beginning of a passion for Natural History, Ethnography, European Works of Art, Antiquities and Curiosities that drive me on all continents, looking for fascinating and rare objects. Whether they are natural or man-made, all have an interesting story to tell.

So, it is finally in this spirit that the collection, which encompasses Natural History, Tribal Art, Paintings, Sculptures and Curiosities from many cultures and periods in history finds its rationale and its roots.
