Hummingbird Taxidermy Screens, by Rowland Ward, 19th Century, English


A pair of 19th century hummingbird taxidermy screens, in bamboo Japanese- style frames probably dating from the last quarter of the 19th century when the aesthetic influence of Japan was very much in vogue. They were created by the renowned London taxidermist Rowland Ward (1835-1912) who made only a few of these rare framed groupings of small birds visible from both sides in the form of firescreens or hanging panels.
