Looks like it even if the side motifs are a bit unusual on this hilt.
Could they have been carved later?

Hello Ben & Michael,

it looks like the antler was a tad too small for the job - I guess this could have influenced the carving/design?

Regards,
Kai

Hi Ben,

It's a cool and spooky head anyway and interesting with the side motifs too.
Could we see the rest of it?

I have something similar where also the antler seems too small for the job.

It is from The 'Willem 't Hart' collection.

I am impressed with the provenance.

Nice and rare double face.
