Late 20th Century Taxidermy African Bull Giraffe

LOVEDAY
Rare and extremely well prepared huge 20th century freestanding taxidermy African bull giraffe shoulder mounted seated on a faux rock bed.

African late 20th / early 21st Century.

Very unusual to find in this naturalistic pose and of extremely good quality standing at an imposing 2.8 meters high. The giraffe is the tallest of all living mammals with their legs being taller than most humans. Their distinctive patterned coat is unique to each individual giraffe and can be a way of identifying what area in Africa the giraffe originated from.

This handsome fellow was bought from a taxidermy specialist where we believe the skin came from an African wildlife park where older or injured giraffes are often culled or pass of natural causes and the skin is sold to help the prevention of poaching and hunting.
Cites Appendix II Annex B.

This impressive and imposing piece of taxidermy is offered in excellent original condition.

Now into the second generation, Loveday antiques is run by Alexander Loveday.

From the early days until 2012 Loveday Antiques had three major showrooms running, located at Chelsea, Ascot and Islington, but sensing the major shift towards the online side of the business in January 2013 Alexander decided to close both Chelsea and Ascot and concentrated more on working via the internet and website as traders, interior designers and the public's buying habits changed.

The internet now allows us to trade globally 24/7, whilst keeping our overheads down and passing on these savings to our clients.

The start of 2014 has also led to more change, relocating the original showroom in London from The Furniture Vault in Camden Passage, from where we have traded for over 40 years, to our new showroom conveniently located in Hertfordshire within the A1 and A10 areas, just off the M25.

The new showroom is just North of London and only a 20 minute train journey from Kings Cross, London to Stevenage, with just a short 10 minute drive from there.  We are can easily arrange to pick clients up from the station as long as you let us know when you are coming.  If you are driving, it is 10 minutes from both the A10 and A1m.
