Sale Information

An historic collection of Natural History and Taxidermy, dating from the early 1870s to the 1930s, amassed by several generations of the Heber-Percy family of Hodnet Hall, Shropshire, on frequent expeditions around the world. The family’s trophies were preserved by leading London taxidermists, as well as those local to the family seat, and were originally displayed in pride of place in the main hall. Following the use of Hodnet Hall as a convalescent home for wounded officers in the First World War, the trophies were given a new home in the stables. The stables were later turned into a tearooms to visitors to the spectacular gardens at the hall, where the trophies have amazed visitors for years. Now the restaurant is due to be refurbished and modernised, the trophies are to be sold at Tennants.
