Natural History

Fossils, Minerals, Sporting Trophies and examples of the art of the Victorian and early 20th century taxidermists appear in all Mellors & Kirk sales.

CITES regulations and the laws of different jurisdictions have made trade in certain items illegal. This has resulted in a sharp increase in the value of those that can be lawfully sold. Mellors & Kirk has specialist knowledge of this complex area and is well placed to advise.

This bizarre miniature Victorian stuffed dog only stood about 8cm high but appealed to a collector of the esoteric who paid £2,500 for it.

Especially sought after is the work of Rowland Ward of Piccadilly Circus, Spicer of Leamington Spa and those taxidermists that specialised in fish.

Specialist Auction Dates

Fossils, Minerals, Sporting Trophies and Taxidermy are included in both our fortnightly Antique & Collectors Sales and our quarterly Fine Art Sales for more information please email enquiries@mellorsandkirk.com 

Valuation Days

Valuations are held at The Auction House every Saturday morning 9am-12noon, other days by appointment. Regular Valuation Days are held across the Midlands please see our Valuation page for full details.
