Silver mount. The tiny stamped and naturalistically rendered two-dimensional image of a game bird standing with head erect; the texture of feathers is faithfully rendered on its wings and long tail, and a small bifid comb projects from the back of the head. The subject is perhaps a pheasant. The object has become detached from its setting, perhaps a wooden vessel. The interest in sporting pursuits which this object hints at is complemented by the frequent reporting from the vicinity of lead shot taken to be for fowling pieces. The thickness of this mount is similar to that of many item…
