Coot & Lapwing by Mountney of Cardiff

Next Case









Coot (Fulica atra) and Lapwing (Vanellus vanellus) by Mountney of Cardiff. Excellent taxidermy, beautiful groundwork and a typically elaborate case construction as preferred by Mountney. Sadly this case also displays Mountney's other hallmark which is the bringing together of species that don't really belong in the same case. A pair of Coots, or even a single bird, would probably have looked better. Nevertheless, a very well executed and decorative case. Badly preserved trade label to right of the case interior. Size 28" x 19" x 11". <click image to enlarge>
