A black painted glass fronted case containing a collection of stuffed but unmounted birds and animals, this illustrates the working process of a taxidermist. The interior is covered with a cream paper. A line is strung across the top of the case and from it hang birds, fish and a stoat. Other taxidermy animals and fish piled at the bottom including an otter and a rabbit and a large bird of prey on a wooden stand.
