Deer antler

Deer antler

Deer antlers are a bony organ found in members of the cervidae family. Our antlers come from the Sambar species (Cervus unicolor or Rusa unicolor) which lives in the dense forests of the southern Asian continent and islands (India, Sri Lanka, Burma, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand, China, Indonesia). Deer antlers are very hard, thick, beaded, solid and have at least 4 tines (antler branches). The species is vulnerable due to its important water requirements. This material has been used since the Upper Paleolithic to make sharp and perforating tools.
We have made up a stock of deer antlers, following India's refusal to export this material.
