Antique Taxidermy Red Squirrel

under original Victorian Glass Dome
 
Very fine example of a stuffed and mounted Red Squirrel. He has been very well preserved and skilfully mounted perched on a wooden branch among natural foliage. He is in excellent condition due to the protection the dome has given him over the years. He has a thick covering of fur and his original whiskers and claws. The colour of the fur has faded slightly with age  .... He comes under the original Victorian hand-blown glass dome which sits on an ebonised base. The dome has the usual natural imperfections but is undamaged and the wooden base has a rich aged patina.
 
Approximate Measurements :
Height of Dome : 20" (50cm)
Diameter of Base : 10" (25cm)
Height of Squirrel : 13" (33cm)
 
A really lovely example and a fantastic piece to add to anybody's collection. Please have a good look at all the photos for the best description and if you have any questions please ask.
 
Due to the very fragile nature of the item I'm asking for collection from Plymouth or Ashburton in Devon. Local South West delivery can be arranged by ourselves for a small cost. If you wish to have the item delivered further afield then it will be by specialist courier so please ask for an accurate quote.
