The base and cover each have bold borders with 4 birds along with lavish flowers and a butterfly. The cover has a Leopard Cat, the base has two Foxes and the Ladle has two Sheep at rest.
It was was made by Job Meigh and Sons, c. 1820, and is part of the elusive the Zoological Sketches series. The series features different wild animals and other exotic creatures on each form.
