Up for auction is one antique bronze plaque. On the plaque is written as follows,
"Lagopus scoticus
This bird has been mounted
And stuffed for the great
Exhibition 1851
By
Ivor poake taxidermist) ltd
69 the strand london"


"Intended as "joke" item these pressed brass plaques
have now become an integral put of taxidermy history.Stating Lacopus Scoticus (Red Grouse) was stuffed by Ivor Poake Ltd for the Great Exhibition 1851 kind of gives the game away.

While their origin cannot be confirmed, am reliablly informed the taxidermists past from Rowland Ward's may have been able to shed some light on the matter."
