This has to be perhaps the finest Arctic Fox display we have seen. Less is indeed more.

Polecats by H Brazenor of Stockport. Used to think this was a fake, despite paying a hugue sum for it. You know the expression, too good to be true???. Limited fading of the mustelids by example?. That said until reported by Morris in latest book (2010) that said person actually took breath. Case is rather delightful and pleased to confirm that Mr Brazenore did exist by Morris. Case not for sale so "cost" is pretty irrelevant. Never have been able to take a decent image of it.

Following a theme of extinction at the moment, here is a male Labrador duck. Few examples of these ducks exist. Good example of a species eaten into extinction.

Victorian European Curlew and chick, by Hodder "Presever of Birds and Animals" of North Street Clapham, London and not for sale. Very much in the style of James Hutchings, but by a Victorian London Taxidermist.


Skylarks.jpg

A pair of Skylarks with 4 chicks preserved by Pratt of Brighton. This Taxidermists features prominently in the Booth Museum. The above case is the best Pratt of Brighton case I have ever seen in terms of attention to detail and the overall balance within what is a compact case. Pratt tended to produce large cases, which sometimes made the birds look a little lost.
