Mounted buffalo

Stuffed female American buffalo (bison) on wooden base. Buffalo was displayed outside a St. Paul firm Lampher, Finch and Skinner, and later suspended out over the sidewalk when the firm (now Lampher, Skinner and Co.) moved around the turn of the century. The donor’s firm also apparently used it in the Outlet Store in St. Paul. Circa 1880.
