Description

A rare pair of taxidermy cases of Himalayan snowcocks by Roland Ward, signed on each case, the birds in a naturalistic diorama, the cases with original glass and stylised bamboo borders.
English c.1883
James Rowland Ward (18481912) was a British taxidermist and founder of the firm Rowland Ward Limited of Piccadilly, London. His work is arguably the finest of its type and is represented in many worldwide museums and private collections. The company specialised in and was renowned for its taxidermy work on birds and big-game trophies, but it did other types of work as well. In creating many practical items from antlers, feathers, feet, skins, and tusks, the Rowland Ward company made fashionable items (sometimes known as Wardian furniture) from animal parts, such as zebra-hoof inkwells, antler furniture, and elephant-feet umbrella stands.
Rowland Ward was also a well-known publisher of natural history books and big-game hunting narratives. The most famous and enduring Rowland Ward Ltd. product is the Records of Big Game series of books, which started in 1892 and is now in its twenty-ninth edition (2014). These books contain measurements of game animals from all over the world and is the oldest such series of books in existence.
