Taxidermy Otter by Cooper and Sons

Otter in a bow fronted case by Cooper and Sons with label in the top left corner of the case.


Cooper is regarded as one of the best when it comes to fish taxidermy coining the phrase “I prefer my fish Coopered to kippered” However whilst it can be relatively easy to obtain a Perch by Cooper, the mammals can be less common. Testament to the skill of the man and the company he founded was his ability to do fish and mammals in a manner that is so pleasing to the eye.

In by gone times otters were considered to be a great threat to fishing stocks and were regularly killed by fisherman.
