A question I get asked a lot. The conversation will go something like I have an old item left to me it is really good how much is it worth?

I try and explain it is a little like ringing up an art gallery and asking the value of a painting. The value is dependent on who did the piece how well it was done subject matter and condition...

Taxidermy is similar, Look at other items online of a similar quality ager and species most old items have a small value 20 to 100 this can be more if a nice case or more unusual

Legal Notice

Any bird must have met with a legitimate death and have a signed letter stating such, if you are unsure of how it died please contact.

Birds Storage Info

The bird should be wrapped in polyethylene and frozen. I have successfully mounted a bird after having been frozen for more than 20 years but obviously it is far better to have it done within a year or so. Just keep it well wrapped and do not forget to keep a record of how, where and when it died.

I can model the bird in any pose and fit in a variety of cases. Have a look around my site to find a case or pose you like. (It is not essential to case an item but it will keep much better in the long term.)

Sending your item – transportation within the UK can either be by post for smaller birds (this must be first class post – inquire at your local post office FOR NEXT DAY DELIVERY) or courier dependent on size.  Please also ring me to make sure someone is here to accept the item 01937 844580.

Packing – please pack in a box to stop the item being crushed and if large, make sure that no fluid can leak from the item otherwise it could be destroyed on route (use a suitable amount of tissue/newspaper then polyethylene).

When sending an item you wish to have done, please fill in Job Sheet (word) – Job Sheet (PDF)

If sending a stock item (ie you don’t want it to be mounted for yourself and donating it to me), please fill in Log Sheet-(Word) – Log-Sheet (PDF) (to save right click and choose “save as”).

Any Problems please ring or email.
