This is an excellent example of a Woodcock in a glass case with a forest floor scenery setting.


This specimen does not require an A10 Licence I have proof that it was obtained legally a Log Book containing this information will be passed to the new owner.

I am a Qualified and Accredited Member of the Guild of Taxidermists,one of only 17 in the UK to have attained this standard. I have attended the last three World Taxidermist Championships in the USA and achieved 1st and 2nd places in the Professional Division.

All my work is preserved and mounted to the highest professional standard as you would expect, not to be confused with the work produced by unqualified commercial taxidermists, (9 out of 10 taxidermists in the UK have no qualifications.)



                                                            A FEW FACTS ABOUT TAXIDERMY IN THE UK

Sadly it looks to be going the way it did in the Victorian Days when anyone and everyone is having a go and calling themselves a Taxidermist.

About 80% of the work is inside and unseen, the washing,cleaning,de-fatting and de-greasing needs to be done thoroughly so that the skin can be properly preserved.

This is were most are cutting corners just concentrating on getting the finished mount looking good, these specimens are not going to last and will soon start to deteriorate.
 

Done following the procedures used by a Qualified Taxidermist and mounted correctly in a glass case these items should last for hundreds of years and appreciate in value and intact become collectors items for future generations to enjoy.

For the best results always use a Taxidermist who is recognised by the UK Guild of Taxidermists as a Specialist or Accredited Taxidermist , you can be sure that these people have proved their ability through a qualification style system and by adhering to a strict set of guidelines. Anyone calling themselves a Taxidermist but not having attained the standards mentioned above are more than likely not skilled enough to achieve them.

It is much better to own one piece of taxidermy that has been correctly preserved and mounted by a Qualified Taxidermist than to buy several pieces of cheaper work, as quite simply they will not appreciate in value and will eventually become pieces of work you are unable to display as they will deteriorate overtime.

By choosing to buy only from a Qualified Taxidermist you are not only getting yourself a piece of work that you can enjoy and indeed pass on for generations, but you are also helping to keep a highly specialised trade alive.


All my work is for sale in the UK only due to complex legislation.

What's a max bid?
Your max bid should be the highest amount you're willing to pay for an item.
We keep your max bid amount a secret from the seller and other bidders.
Max bidding example:
If a current bid is £20 and your max bid is £30, we bid £21 for you.
If no one else bids, you win and pay £21.
However, if someone else places a bid for £35, you will be out bid and the new highest bid on the auction will be £31. You will need to increase your max bid to more than £35 to be the highest bidder.
