Antique Taxidermy is really in full swing now for interested collectors. People from all over the world are buying 100+ year old taxidermy mounts for their collection while they last. Even the wood shields with the name of the taxidermist that did the work sometimes brings more money than a taxidermy me itself. One of the pluses of antique Taxidermy is that there is often a full skull in the mount that was used to build the form. Thus, if the taxidermy itself is not recoverable then the piece can be used as call and horns for display. Rowland Ward Taxidermy Mounts appear to be on of the most desirable.
