Victorian taxidermy in case red squirrel/stoat/kingfisher/lark/goldfinch/pigeons



I am selling this Victorian collection of animals in a case.  It is typical of work at that time when they used to put as many animals as possible in one case, so not all of them are displayed to their best advantage.  But they are all well crafted and worth looking at.   The red squirrel is enjoying a filbert.  The stoat alert & lively - poised for a strike.  The Kingfisher is diving for his fish.  The lark is nicely perched with his head raised and the goldfinch (or perhaps a greenfinch) is in a slightly twisted pose - wings spread - just leaving his perch.  The pigeons are just being pigeons!

Any one - or all - of these birds/mammals could be displayed on its own in a more modern manner, although there is plenty of vintage atmosphere in their retro setting.

The case is sturdy and measures 47cm x 47cm x 20cm

I will send this item, very well packed, by courier.  The courier will be ordered on the day that payment is received and will collect the following day for delivery the day after that (weekends excluded).

PayPal is our preferred method of payment so you can receive your goods as quickly as possible.

UK purchasers may also pay with cheque or postal order. INTERNATIONAL - PAYPAL ONLY, no exceptions.



I post all items as soon as possible after receipt of payment, usually 1-2 working days. In the UK I use second class because of the recent substantial rise in postage prices. I use standard International airmail for those items I can send outside the UK.  I try to pack everything as carefully as possible and have only had one item break in 10 years of trading!     I use clean packing materials, but am happy to use some recycled packaging for the sake of the environment (and our pockets!).  I do not pass on all of the packaging costs to my buyers.

Terms of Sale

Please make your payment within three days of the end of the auction.  I will send a friendly reminder on the fourth day, and if I have not heard from you after 7 days, I reserve the right to open a case and/or relist the item.

If an item is Buy it Now, immediate payment is required. If it is Buy it Now or Best Offer, please make your payment as soon as your offer is accepted as there may be others waiting.

About Us

I have been trading on ebay for many years, selling small collectibles, textiles, craft items and books. I want only happy buyers and value my positive feedback. If there is anything you are not satisfied with, I will deal with your complaint fairly. If an item is damaged in the post or is substantially not as described, I will give you a full refund, including postage, when the item is returned. No hassle. I only make a very small charge for packaging and do my best to be accurate with the postage. If I find that I have overestimated the postage, I will make an immediate refund of the excess. If I have underestimated, I bear the excess myself.
