Maker: Richard Lang

A fine antique silver model of a pheasant hallmarked in London by Richard Lang. The model would have been made in Hanau, Germany and then imported into London.

The model is beautifully hand chased and is in excellent condition.

The head of the pheasant is detachable, which is common for animal models of this age. Before the First World War, there was heavy tax on luxury goods. To avoid this, silversmiths made the heads detachable so they could pretend that they were “storage vessels” – apparently this ruse was effective.

The pheasant is beautifully detailed with finely made feathers and has a pair of wings that can be raised (which is a lovely extra feature).

The pheasant is hallmarked on its body, head and wings.

Dimensions: length 36 cm; weight 12 troy oz.
