A Large Museum Cased Taxidermy Group of Four Scottish Red Grouse by

About the object

The large and impressive case bearing two pairs of preserved red grouse (Lagopus lagopus), two female and two male, the specimens set upon typical Duncan wooden blocks and housed within a beautiful scientific sparse museum case, the males in opposing stances in full breeding finery having hot-red wattles above their eyes, the females in an un-opposing stance with their distinctive mottling, the pine sides in the original brown stained finish, with the whole being beautifully unassuming with off white paper backing, signed and dated ‘R.Duncan 1882’ to the upper left flank, and lacking in any form of simulated habitat; surviving from late Victorian England in superb overall condition.
