Vintage Taxidermy Foam Form Manniken No. 3 These came from a friend's taxidermy shop when he was a taxidermist many decades ago. In pretty good condition, obviously they're vintage and old. They were never used, however, they do have some markings on them as if he were to mount them!
The size is written on it stating it is 6 1/2" x 16 1/2" Would be a good cheap form to work on your first deer, or we have seen them used for other things (such as faux pelts, rugs, fabric and even being modge-podged over!). They would look lovely on the wall no matter what you do with them, no matter if you use it for its original traditional use or revamping it and adding your own flare! There is a cut on top of the head where a set of antlers are supposed to go, but as stated, you may add your own flare (we have seen faux antlers as well as cool driftwood or neat pieces of wood in place of it! Great for holding your jewelry or ornaments!).
Due to its vintage age, it may/does have some dings and whatnot on it, however, this does not hurt it in any way as it is meant to be covered up!
It measures ~ 22 1/2" tall from the back to the tip of the nose. The back does have wood on it and a hole where you can place it on a hanger for your wall.
Please view photos to see more detail we may have missed and we hope you love it!

You pay... I ship!
I accept PayPal and Postal Money Orders - though I PREFER Postal Money Orders, I know some people like things done quick! If you can handle the week to two week wait on an item, I'd just be tickled if you sent a PMO as this helps aid me in shipping so my poor college student behind can pay without pulling too much out of my own pocket!
