Item Details

An antique taxidermy family group of common snipe, in the original glazed display case. Unusually the display includes two chicks as well as two adult birds. All are in excellent condition, with glass eyes with wonderful patterning and feather colour and general condition of the birds with only some minor wear to one of he chicks has been maintained through the display not being subjected to direct sunlight. The birds are in a very convincing naturalistic setting with grasses, heather, moss and imitation rock and painted backdrop. The original hand written label which is set inside the case is still to be found on the front glass, there are two metal eyes at the top of the display case for hanging. There has been some repair to the case’s wooden frame making this an exceptional display.
