The beautiful collection of eight mixed natural history specimens each rod mounted on an ebonised circular plinth stands, with some bearing paper label inventory numbers, comprising two coral examples; one being particularly large, two Starfish, two papier-mâché Toadstools, and two dinosaur interest specimens, all surviving from the first quarter of twentieth century England.
In largely good order, there is light general wear commensurate with age mainly to the stands. The large acropora coral specimen has some expected losses and a repair to one section which is visible from the underside. The toadstools have small areas of flaked loss.
