Perky looking tawny owl, typical of the work of its creator A.S Hutchinson of Derby
Hutchinson began in business around
1870, and continued into the 20th century. He worked for several
northern museums and was responsible for preparing and establishing the
Seebohm Collection in Sheffield Museum. He is described in a note in The
Zoologist 1878 by E. Howarth, the curator of Sheffield Museum, as `now
stuffer at this Museum`.
There are a few examples of his work in Harpur
Crewe`s Collection at Calke Abbey.
Hutchinson was also the co-author of the Birds of Derbyshire dated 1893. His style of taxidermy was regarded as one of the best and most prolific provincial taxidermists.
