About the Blesbok (Damaliscus pygargus phillipsi)

The White Blesbok (or Blesbuck) is a large antelope found in the southern region of Africa. Blesbok coloration is often a deep sienna or dark brown through the back, with a white blaze found on the face, and a creamy white running down the underbelly, flank and parts of the legs. The White Blesbok, however, has little to no brown coloration, and is often a creamy white and tan color throughout the entire body. Both the male and female have 'ringed' horns that initially curve backward, with a forward curl towards the tip, and commonly weigh between 125-175 lbs. Blesbok's preferred habitat includes open plains and grasslands with sources for water. When trying to escape from predators, Blesbok can run at speeds exceeding 40 mph.

The Taxidermy Store's Rating Guide
© 2011-2013 The Taxidermy Store, Inc. All Rights Reserved.


We have developed an exclusive grading system divided into seven categories to help our clients take the guesswork out of choosing the right quality taxidermy piece.

Grades are assigned to each item based on our 40+ years of experience in the taxidermy industry. From serious world class specimen collectors to first time buyers, we can help you find just the right item to meet your needs!

We grade each item based on its collective overall characteristics, including the following: horn/antler size, hair condition, skin integrity, coloration and size. Taxidermy criteria studied includes: anatomical accuracy, expression & pose, components used in fabrication, preservation methods and overall taxidermy quality. Each category, when present, is carefully considered before a grade is assigned and recorded on the items individual Grade & Specifications Certificate (GSC).
World Class


In order to achieve this prestigious ranking, the item listed must pass inspection as the finest example of it’s type. Virtually no imperfections will be seen in this category.

- Taxidermy quality will be world-class / museum ready.
- All attributes will be of exceptional quality & world-class when applicable.
- Estimate: 3% of Taxidermy items qualify to receive this ranking.


Recommendation: The World Class category is set aside for the serious collector or decorator who require the highest tier of products available. World Class items can stand alone as a centerpiece in any museum exhibit or taxidermy showcase. Choose this category when you require nothing less, than quite literally, the best of the best.

Premier


Items listed in the Premier category are some of the highest quality products available in the market. The Premier ranking demands paramount quality with only the slightest naturally occurring imperfections tolerated.

- Taxidermy quality is Premier, showing fine detail in craftsmanship.
- All attributes will be of superior quality & trophy-class when applicable.
- Estimate: 7% of Taxidermy items qualify to receive this ranking.


Recommendation: This category is ideal for the refined collector or decorator looking for a top quality premium item that is sure to be the centerpiece of any room or collection. Our most fastidious collectors often build their collections with items ranked Premier or higher.

Excellent


Items listed in this category are sure to meet or surpass the quality of common products found in the popular market. Typically only small, natural imperfections like scars or blemishes will be tolerated in this category.

- Taxidermy quality is Excellent with great attention to detail.
- All attributes will be of fine quality & above average for the species/type.
- Estimate: 30% of Taxidermy items qualify to receive this ranking.


Recommendation: This category is ideal for the collector or decorator looking for a high quality item without the premium price tag. This is one of our most popular categories and comes with our highest recommendation for the typical decorator or collector.

Nice


Items ranked in this category are some of the most common items found in the market. These products will display good quality with a just a few imperfections, scars or range marks.

- Taxidermy quality is average and common throughout the marketplace.
- All attributes will be of standard quality and average size.
- Estimate: 30% of Taxidermy items qualify to receive this ranking.


Recommendation: This category is ideal for the collector or decorator looking for one of the best quality-to-price ratios we offer. Choose this category (or higher) for your weekend cabin, restaurant, man-cave or business. This is one of our most popular categories.

Fair


If ranked in this category, the item may have several naturally occurring flaws and/or imperfections, but still maintains good overall integrity and craftsmanship.

- Taxidermy quality is below average, but still maintains integrity.
- Attributes may be lower-grade and/or below average in size or quality.
- Estimate: 15% of Taxidermy items qualify to receive this ranking.


Recommendation: This category is ideal for the collector or decorator looking for the best possible price while still getting a fair overall quality mount. The fair grade ranking should not deter any collector or decorator from a one-of-a-kind piece.

Vintage


To be ranked in this category the item will have a vintage styling. Vintage items should not be assumed as poor, as these items may have previously been higher in quality. Components used in fabrication will also be of vintage or retro style.

- Taxidermy work is vintage or retro styled and varies in overall appearance.
- Attributes may vary greatly in size, shape and color in this category.
- Estimate: 15% of Taxidermy items qualify to receive this ranking.


Recommendation: The vintage classification usually refers to the products age, not necessarily its quality. These pieces are ideal for the vintage collector with an eye for a unique or one-of-a-kind piece. The classic look and retro appearance of vintage items have made this category increasingly popular among our clients.

Poor


Items graded under this ranking will have visible flaws such as discoloration, scarring, tearing and/or poor taxidermy quality. Though not all these categories are guaranteed to be flawed, items ranked as poor will be on the lower end of products available on the market, and for this reason, will have the lowest price point.

- Taxidermy quality may be inferior or substandard.
- Some attributes will most likely be damaged, broken, or missing.
- Estimate: Items with severe flaws or damage qualify to receive this ranking.


Recommendation: This category is ideal only for the buyer who, for example, intend to hang the item on the outside of a cabin or similar structure where snow, rain and sun will take their toll and further degrade the item over time, making the purchase of a higher quality mount unnecessary.



Plus & Star Designations


Plus +


To be awarded a Plus designation, the item must be at the top end of its grading tier. Items receiving a plus offer an exceptional value without paying the next grade level price. The following grades are eligible to receive the plus designation: Premier, Excellent, Nice, Fair and Vintage. Poor and World Class are not eligible to receive the plus designation.

- Each item receiving a plus will be at the upper portion of the grade.
- Estimate: the top 25% of each category receives the plus designation.


Recommendation: Look for plus grades if you would like the best possible mount without paying the next tier level price.

Star ✭


To be awarded a Star designation, the item needs to be exceptional and/or unique. Only items graded Excellent, Premier and World Class are eligible to receive the Star addition to their Grade. Examples of attributes eligible to receive the Star designation may include: a rare color or blend of hair colors, a unique horn or antler shape/size or an item that has an overall exceptional appearance/attribute that can’t be reflected by its grade alone. Pricing will vary for Star Graded items on a per item basis.

- The Star designation is given to items with exceptional overall appearances.
- Estimate: few items will meet the demanding criteria necessary to earn a star.


Recommendation: Look for Star designations to find the most unique and exceptional products we currently have to offer.
