This is a lovely print of poultry. Drawn by J. W. Ludlow and printed by Vincent Brooks, Day & Son, Lithographer. During the Mid-Victorian period, the nature of a country gentleman's wealth was determined by the breadth of his flock, which at times referred to his prized poultry stock. This fine chromolithograph is an actual portrait of a prizewinning cultivated breed. In the tradition of classic 19th century animal portraiture, the bird is here represented in minute detail accentuating the meritous elements of the particular breed. The plate not only names the bird, but credits its owner and documents at which prestigious agricultural fair the Prized Cup or First Place Ribbon was awarded. Ludlow has sensitively portrayed his fowl in a natural farm or henhouse setting, showing the birds own personality and temperament that seems to correspond to its appearance .Traditional poultry prints have been fashionable for decades as they are equally at home in a stylish city townhouse, as in a casual country home setting. It is signed Ludlow del in the lower left corner and Vincent Brooks, Day and Son is under the lower right corner. The print has a triple matt of deep brown, gold and a reddish brown color. The frame is a dark brown with gold. The previous own has placed some information about it on the back, please see picture.
