A beautiful collection of vintage butterfly & moth specimens housed in a five drawer chest. A wonderful entomology collection of British butterflies & moths consisting of around 280 specimens housed in glazed drawers within a paper bound pine chest with pressed brass handles. The collection features a stunning array of colours, almost all the specimens are labeled & dated & have been been assembled by a P R Baines. A fantastic piece.
Most specimens date to the 1960's & 1970's, chest earlier.
Wear commensurate with age, light damage to some specimens which are in good condition overall given their age & fragile nature. The chest has some wear & loss to the paper covering in places but remains solid & displays well.
Collection in person strongly advised, couriers welcome, please enquire for details.
