This is an expensive toy for the entertainment of dinner guests. It can roll over the table, since the base of the ‘sculpture’ has wheels and a movement to propel it forward. The head of the stag can be removed and its body filled with wine. The guest in front of whom Diana stops may take the first drink.

On display in room 2.3
