Antique taxidermy Lyrebird Tail feathers

An Edwardian taxidermy Lyrebird tail feather within a polished wooden frame.


The Lyrebird’s tailfeathers were highly sort after in the Victorian era and often displayed in expensive and luxury frames much like this one. Their most impressive quality however, is not the male’s tailfeathers but their ability to mimic natural and alien sounds within the environment they inhabit.
