Rowland Ward Otter Pups

Rowland Ward Otter Pups with label on the bottom of the case.

Description

An all glass case containing two Otter Pups playing by Rowland Ward. All glass cases and green tape were traditional of Rowland Ward throughout the 1920’s and this case is typical of that particular era of taxidermy. The level of expression in their faces is testament to Rowland Ward at its absolute peak. Rowland Ward is the heavyweight of British taxidermy turning a trade he learned from his father into big business at one point working out of Piccadilly Circus and hiring up to 40 members of staff.
