Rick created this horn display piece in answer to those people who love the rustic statement an authentic steer horn can make yet do NOT want to hang a set of horns on a wall due to space limitations or other reasons. The stand is custom made (by Rick here in our shop) using a solid cast iron rosette as a base. The (solid) iron bar sits at an angle to allow for the curl of the horn (it allows the horn to be displayed perfectly up and down so that you can show off every twist!). Solid twisted iron double loop holder at the top holds the horn perfectly in place. Rick cuts out each piece and welds them together before allowing the entire piece to naturally rust. Then he seals it to preserve and protect the finish. He applies small raised "feet" to the base so you don't have to worry about scratching whatever you set this on. He makes Each stand custom and specifically for the individual horn it displays so that it holds it in place without allowing the tip to touch the base. The HORN itself is a REAL Texas longhorn steer horn. We choose the ones with the BEST color variations and shape. This Custom MADE in the USA (TEXAS!) piece comes READY to be displayed. A wonderful conversation piece direct from us (in Texas) to YOU! Measures 18" tall and approximately 6 3/4" wide (with the horn). The horn itself is 17 1/4" tall with a 2 3/4" opening.
