They’re one of the most beautiful forms in nature…” Gail Flynn Hunting trophies have been used as source material for clothes hooks, storage racks and lamps since the 15th century. Mounting antlers and stuffed heads on walls provided impressive, decorative displays for hunting trophies. A hunting lodge replete with antlers and stuffed animals was most likely where ideas for antler furnishings emerged. At the beginning of the 19th century antler furniture was made exclusively for the European nobility to decorate palaces, castles and country seats. The furniture was either made completely from stag antler, or it was decorated with antler pieces from the stag, deer, fallow deer and others, or veneered with sliced antler pieces to create a hunting design. The first recorded antler furniture dates from 1825, made for a hunting castle of Count William of Nassau near Wiesbaden, Germany. Other famous collections of historical antler furniture are the hunting room in the country estate of the brandhof of Archduke Johann of Austria or the antler collection of Count Arco in his palace in Munich, Germany. There are hundreds of drawings of creative antler decorations by the Austrian furniture maker Joseph Danhauser (1780-1829). In 1851, chairs, chests of drawers and a sofa made of horns were exhibited at the Great Exhibition Of The Industries Of All Nations in London which were considered one of the great novelties of this iconic exhibition. This created a new lifestyle trend and fashion driven by the ambitious European middle-class and antler furniture disseminated into bourgeoisie households. One of the first designers is the German ivory carver and furniture maker H. F. C. Rampendahl who gained enthusiastic successes on several world exhibitions with his antler furniture. An antler bureau, a horn seating group or individual chairs, decorated gun cabinets, H.F.C. Rampendahl created a whole new design world for fashioning rooms. This prompted other designers in Germany Austria and USA to make antler furniture H.F.C. Rampendahl, Hamburg, P. Keutner, Regensburg, Vitus Madel & Son, Ichenhausen, Kurt Schicker, Regensburg, Heinrich Keitel, Vienna, Rudolf Brix, Vienna, Friedrich Wenzel, San Antonio. These are some of the most important manufacturers of antler furniture and their range covered the whole market of furniture as well as smaller pieces. Their catalogues feature antler furnishings (Geweihmöbel) like antler gun racks, antler chandeliers, antler-frames, antler chairs, lusterweibchen, antler cabinets as well as small decorative items like desk sets, humidors, wardrobes, cutlery, etc.. The last decade has seen a revival in the popularity of antler furniture. Its iconic, natural organic style creates a striking focal point in modern households as well as eye-catchers for hunting lodges and chalets in mountain areas. The flowing sculptural form of antlers retain the grace, agility and presence of the animals that they came from.
