Remarks:
Buffalo horn hat rack, wall mount style, one pair of buffalo horn caps, with rough ends on, mounted at each end of a section of wood post so that they curve outward, one pair of buffalo horn caps mounted along bottom of post so that they curve down then up; horns are attached to post with numerous large nails around their bases; post is covered with midnight blue velvet with a raised floral pattern in pink, gold, light green, dark green and white, very crudely stitched together at bottom. Condition: Horns in good shape except for the nails driven into them; velvet is thread-bare in many places and design is dirty; remnants of a leather thong for hanging are nailed into back. Origin: May be Larom inventory #263 - Fine shaved buffalo horns (4) with velvet wrappings - coat hanger. Paul Fees thought they may be a Bradford-Decker Collection item but no verification of that has been found. See 1.69.559 for a similiar leather bound set from William Cody Boal.
