European mounting plaque

I know this is a long shot, but I was at a craft show this past spring and a vendor was selling very unique European mounting plaques. They were dark in color but the arm holding the plaque looked to be laser cut and had a great swirly design. The arm was longer allowing the skull to sit farther out from the wall and on a flatter angle. They were great looking and I should have asked for a card but I didn’t. I love the look of a European mount but most don’t sit at the right angle for my tastes. Has anyone seen a plaque like the one I described? I’ve searched over and over again on the internet and keep finding the same ones. Even if no one has, it was worth a shot! I’ll definitely be going back to that craft show this year to see if they are back. Any help is greatly appreciated

Not sure by what you mean in regards to a flatter angle ? Here is a couple of euro mounts from the last few years.

A product that maybe the one you are looking for or similar is called Skill Hooker

I’m not sure of the name rc. It was at SB Elliot park near Rockton Pa.

Steel, I prefer the mounts that sit away from the wall like your second pic. The plaques at this show tilted the nose up more, almost like the deer was looking you in the eye and extended out from the wall more. I haven’t seen one that way before or since.

Thanks for the input guys.

Hunter these were made from wood. I’ve seen the metal ones like the skull hooker but have never tried them

The one my sons got his European mount on was from Whitetail woodcrafters. I posted a picture of it a couple weeks ago. They have a website and ship also if that's the type of plaque you are looking for. I picked his up at the National Apple Harvest Festival in Arendtsville PA. I believe the do a lot of shows.
