Antlers are non-permanent growths on the skull of animals in the family Cervidae, which include deer, elk, moose, and more. They typically grow in pairs, with one antler on each side of the head. Antlers are not a permanent part of the skull; rather, they are grown, shed, and re-grown annually.
In most species, including deer, elk, and moose, antlers are found only on males. In caribou/reindeer, however, antlers are found on both males and females.

An antler that has matured then fallen off the skull as part of the natural grow, shed, and re-grow cycle is called a "shed." While some antler lamps are made from real antlers (usually sheds), most of the ones currently for sale use faux (reproduction) antlers. Faux antlers are less expensive than their real counterparts, and their size and appearance can be controlled during the manufacturing process.

Real Antlers, Faux Antlers, and Antler Lamps
While some antler lamps are made from real antlers, most of the ones currently for sale use faux (reproduction) antlers. Faux antlers can be painted in a variety of attractive or artistic designs, adding a unique flair to a lamp or room. They can also be quite realistic in appearance and difficult to distinguish from real antlers.
If an antler lamp uses real antlers they are almost always sheds, as described above. If the origin of the antlers in a lamp you are interested in is important to you be sure to read the description of the lamp carefully.
Save The Lamp For Later
If you find an antler lamp that you like on Amazon but you're not ready to purchase it right away, you can always add it to your shopping cart so it will be easy to find later.
- In most cases, Amazon will keep track of the items in your shopping cart for 90 days.
- Later on, if you decide you don't want the items after all, it's easy to click "delete" and remove them from your cart.
- In the meantime, if you want to check out with other items, click "Save for later" to move the lamp to a separate, but still easy-to-find list beneath your shopping cart.
Important: Putting an item in your Amazon shopping cart or "Save for later" list does NOT reserve it! It just makes it easier to find if it's still in stock when you come back.
