About this item

We're suckers for old dead animals in glass cases, especially those you have zero chance of actually getting to hold in the wild. It's a chance to really get up close to an animal and study it's shape and form. This is probably why they were so popular in schools, libraries and museums back in the day.

This Cuckoo bird with a fanned tail is a great example of early 20th century taxidermy, the natural surroundings and foliage are an art form in itself.

Featuring scuffs and wear to the wooden case which measures approximately 38cm wide, 21.5cm deep and 49cm tall, there is also discolouring and pitting to the background of the display.
