PostSubject: Vintage Jonas zebra models   Sat Jul 20, 2013 12:55 am

I found some nice vintage zebra models by Louis Paul Jonas who was a taxidermist for several American museums, his studio produced many great scale model animals as well.
I think the Grevys zebra proportions are a bit off, the head/neck seems a little large but that might just be the angle of the photo.  The paintwork is very nicely done I think.

From looking around at images the studio produced many, many different species but the sculpting quality was not consistent as some looked very accurate while others not so much.

The auction listing says that the zebras are carved wood models, though I think this studio also made plaster reproductions as well for multiple copies.
