Antlers, real or faux, have been used to decorate people’s home for centuries. It has to be said they are a bit like Marmite, you either love them or loathe them. Either way there’s no getting away from the fact that many interior designers use them as wall art or accessories. They may be fashionable but what on earth do you do with them?
Note: Many species of male deer lose their antlers every year, so there’s no need to think that the animals are harmed, unless of course they’ve been shot or run over, when you see antlers displayed in people’s homes.
Antlers make a fabulous, natural wine rack.
