A Victorian taxidermy tableau of two toads engaged in a duel

late 19th century


held in a glazed box frame

40cm. high, 41cm. wide, 18cm. deep; 1ft. 4in., 1ft. 4 1/4in., 7in.

In ‘country house’ condition the tableau would benefit from some restoration and consolidation. The taped borders of the case with losses and lifting and the glass panels are therefore loose in places. The blue painted background is flaking and some elements from the scene are loose and need to be re-attached (including shells and palm fonds). Generally displaying typical old marks, scuffs and scratches consistent with age. Great fun.
