Golden Plovers (Pluvialis apricaria) in winter plumage by Gunn of Norwich. Uncharacteristically this case is not labelled, but the modelling of the birds, the case construction, and more significantly, the groundwork, leave no doubt that this is the work of Gunn. Most likely excecuted by Thomas Gunn, but it could be by one of his sons and Edwin in particular as the case came to auction from a collection in Kent. Size 15" x 13" x 9". <click image to enlarge>
