A Taxidermy Cased Monal Pheasant by Peter Spicer
England, circa 1910

A very fine taxidermy cased Monal pheasant by Peter Spicer, one of greatest British taxidermists. Monal pheasants come from the Himalayas, and they are stunning colourful members of the pheasant family. The Monal pheasant is the national bird of Nepal.

Spicer was based in Leamington Spa during the Victorian era and early 20th century. Spicer's cases are known for their characteristic painted backdrops and realistic bases made from papier-mâché, dried vegetation, and real pebbles. In addition to taxidermy, Spicer dealt in sporting trophies and catalogues of the annual trophy winners.
