A beautiful early antique taxidermy starling by James Hutchings of Aberystwyth.
A charming & well executed piece of late Victorian taxidermy, housed in an ebonized & glazed pine case & finished with a paper makers label inside.
James Hutchings began working in the taxidermy trade during the 1860's & became one of the most prolific & well respected taxidermy outfits in Great Britain. They specialized in badgers, foxes, sea birds & birds of prey & more common species of birds by Hutchins are actually extremely rare & do not show up very often.
An unusual, interesting & early case, likely 1870's & a very early example of Hutchings work.
Wear commensurate with age, overall good, 'as found' condition, background appears historically overpainted though possibly original.
Collection in person preffered, UK courier service available at £15 tracked & signed for 24 hour delivery.
