Ankole Wall Mount by Rose & Fitzgerald. This ethically sourced horn wall mount is the perfect statement piece for any wall. Valued for both its hardness and its ability to become soft and pliable when heated, Ankole cattle horn has been used by East Africans for centuries. Meticulously sanded, polished, and then sealed with a lacquer for a smooth and shiny finish.
Due to the considerable size of Ankole horns and their wide range of naturally occurring colors, this wall mount is truly one-of-a-kind; no two are exactly alike. Ankole cow horn is indigenous to East Africa, making this material extremely rare.
Each one is individually crafted from start to finish by an artisan in a fair trade environment in Uganda. Imperfections are expected and contribute to the uniqueness of your handmade good.
