Antlers are a naturally renewable resource.

 

Every spring the antlers naturally drop from the elk, deer and moose and they start growing new ones.  Local Boy Scouts in Jackson Hole gather these antlers and sell them at a public auction on the Jackson Town Square.

 

Jackson Hole's National Elk Refuge lies just northeast of the Town of Jackson. It was established in 1912 as a result of public interest in the survival of the elk herd that wintered in the valley called Jackson Hole. It is estimated there were over 20,000 elk in the valley when settlers arrived at the turn of the century. Today, the refuge provides a winter home for about 7,500 elk.  This the only refuge the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service devotes primarily to elk management. The National Elk Refuge provides food and shelter for a rich mixture of wildlife such as deer, bison, coyote, wolves, mountain lions, big horn sheep, waterfowl and birds of prey. 

 

Associated with aristocracy, antlers have adorned European castles and hunting lodges for centuries. Today, furnishings and accessories made from antlers are featured in fine homes throughout the world and are a reflection of grace and elegance.

 

We select the most beautiful and unusual antlers for our fixtures. Our antler work is superior in quality and impeccably designed to highlight the natural beauty of the antler
