For all of you collecting antique taxidermy, here’s a killer companion piece. Diplmoma issued Dec 10, 1909 in Omaha Nebraska. In the far left corner is a gold seal that reads “The Northwestern School / Corporate Seal of Taxidermy” and a 1″ tall photo of the graduate attached to the diploma. Buck engraving at the center with “School of Taxidermy: Taxidermy Taught in all its Branches” motto atop. Incredible condition, largely clean and without flakes/cracks/or loss – just a few small stains, see photo. Frame is in perfect shape, never taken apart (the backing paper has been taped – nothing else). Measures 15.5 x 18.5″. Even without a taxidermy collection, this is perfect Victorian goth or steampunk decor – scarce. $95.
