A 20thC Taxidermy Badger in Naturalistic Case


Origin: English
Period: Twentieth Century
Provenance: Unknown
Date: c.1930
The Case: Height: 20 inches
Width: 29.5 inches
Depth: 8.5 inches
Badger Length: 25 inches

A taxidermy badger, in a naturalistic case, decorated with grasses and ferns.  The snarling adult badger has original claws and teeth, glass eye and bushy tail. The case is lacking its glass (making the badger easily accessible), and the badger has two claws missing, and his left eye missing, otherwise he is intact, with no loss to the fur.

As the case is somewhat distressed, and the badger is not fixed down, he is primed and ready for practical jokes, or to be successfully positioned to fulfil any of his myriad duties, which include, but may not be limited to: scaring squirrels or other small rodents, acting as a foot stool, offending sensitive children, watching while you shave, guarding your spice collection, or taking for walks in the park (lead not included).

Names are entirely your choice, but we would hope you would be more creative than 'Bodger'. Enjoy.
