English Heritage

This oriental silver pheasant specimen was created by JT Storrs of No. 6, Silver Street, Doncaster. It is one of a collection of late 19th-century specimens at Brodsworth made by local taxidermists, including C Helstrip and Edward Allen & Co., both of York. The collection was previously on display throughout the house, but most of it was gathered for storage in the lathe room in the 1930s because the last resident of Brodsworth Hall, Sylvia Grant-Dalton, did not like taxidermy.
