POSTAGE TO EU ONLY, anyone is welcome to bid but I can only send this item to EUROPE.

**THIS ITEM IS PRE 1947, A LEGAL SALEABLE ITEM IN THE EU** 1900's 1903

Here we have an very nice flat, half mounted Leopard skin OR Snow Leopard skin. (you decide) personally I think it's a Snow Leopard due to the thick fur, leopard like spots and snow leopard like paws and fur between pads.. but I MIGHT be wrong so no guarantee. Please decide for yourself :)

Please study the photos for condition. Generally good condition but does have some areas of damage to the face and front right paw/read left leg .The fur is still very good in colour and supple and very thick and furry. These photos do not do this skin justice. Stamped EG and then underneath marked either 1003 or 1903. The age 1903 fits with the provenance I was told when I found the skin. The colours of the fur change in different lights. There is a little bit of stitching on the skin but these look as old as the skin itself. Fabric is loose in some areas and the tail skin underneath is quite cracked.
