    pair of chinese buffalo horns hand decorated with a dragon & tigers above carved wooden base plynths 17 inches high

    A quality pair of real Buffalo Horns,having been hand decorated by cutting into the surface with a thin blade to raise the hard outer layer of the horn

    The hand craftsmanship in making these superb examples would have taken many skilled hours,being both labour intensive re the hours taken to just produce one finished specimen,and all aspects done by hand and originally produced for the tourists to take home with them.
    Mant cuts are made into the horn to implement a fine raised pattern and design,each showing a Chinese dragon with its tail wrapped tightly around the horn right up to the tip.
    At the bases of each horn is depicted a fierce Tiger,shown growling at the dragon above.
    The base of each horn has been hand carved from a soft wood and is ribbed in design with a light coat of varnish to seal the surface.
    A fine matching pair in very good condition and still with the tiny red glass inset eyes attached in order to add realism.
    Height 17 Inches
    Base 5 x 3 Inches
