1950s Garden Deer

R520.00 R312.00

The lovely Harry who I bought today’s deer from has been telling me about these garden fawns for some time now, but having never seen an original version I wasn’t quite sure what he was on about. Apparently they’re very collectible, dating to sometime between the 1950s and ’60s, and can sell for anything from $150, to an impressive $1200 (R15 000!), depending on things such as size, condition and provenance. The little chap that we have for sale today is a decent size, and in good condition for his years – his paintwork, which is quite restrained, looks to be original, and bar some small areas which are peeling, is pretty neat. Sadly I don’t know where he comes from, but otherwise he ticks all the right boxes!

I’m not sure if it’s the influence of my brother (who I think would do his nut for our bambi!), but I think our deer is really quite lovely! In fact I like him so much that I’d be tempted to bring him indoors and keep him as a feature somewhere conspicuous like a lounge or entrance way.

Dimensions: Approx. 34cm long x 15cm wide x 32cm tall
