EDITORS COMMENTS
This photograph print, created by the renowned English artist Harrison Weir in 1858, depicts the Birmingham Show's Exhibition of Domestic Poultry. The image showcases various prize-winning birds, including Mr. Maddiford's Fantail, Nun, and Jacobine Pigeons, awarded the Silver Cup; Mr. Worrall's Owl Pigeons, taking the first prize; Mr. Adkins' Pouter Carrier and Almond Tumbler Pigeons, receiving the Silver Cup; Mr. G. Moss's Gamecock, earning the second prize; Mr. Parkins Jones's Polish Cock, winning the first prize; Capt. Hornby's Gamecock, taking the first prize; Mr. Brundrit's Spanish Fowls, granted the Silver Cup; and Capt. Hornby's Dorking Fowls, receiving the Silver Cup. The excitement and anticipation are palpable as participants and spectators gather around the exhibition, eager to witness the unveiling of the winners. One enthusiast, who valued his pen of Cochin chickens at a staggering thousand pounds, did not go home with a prize. However, the crowd either smiled at his exorbitant estimation or gravely pronounced such rare birds too good to be eaten. This evocative engraving, published in the Illustrated London News, provides a fascinating glimpse into the world of 19th-century agricultural shows and the passion and dedication of the poultry breeders. The intricate plumage and proud posture of the birds on display are a testament to the artistry and skill of Harrison Weir, making this print a valuable addition to any collection of historical animal art.
