Next Case






Turnstones (Arenaria interpres) by Thomas Gunn of Norwich. Lovely birds in summer plumage. The case is unusal in that it is not the normal ebonised pine. We might guess it was a special order as extra care has been taken (e.g., the case is a mixture of hardwoods, the joints have deep dovetails and rather than simple paper tape holding in the glass it is retained by beading, itself held in place by tiny brass screws). Overall a very lovely case with superb modelling and delightfully under stated but species-typical groundwork. Nice trade label to the rear of the case. Size 22" x 14" x 10". <click image to enlarge>
