EDITORS COMMENTS
This stunning chromolithograph depicts a proud Silver Spangled Hamburgh cock and hen, a prized breed during the Victorian era. The pair, known as Henry Beldon's pair, achieved great success in poultry shows during the late 1800s. The Silver Spangled Hamburgh, also referred to as the Psyche or Dark Brahma, was a popular breed for its exotic and striking plumage. The cock, with its dark, glossy feathers adorned with silver tips, stands proudly with a rooster comb and wattles, while the hen, with her golden-hued feathers and dark speckles, displays her elegant curves and full plumage. The Silver Spangled Hamburgh was first exhibited at the Allerton Cup in 1871, where the hen took first place, and later won the cup at the Bristol show in 1872. The intricate details of the Silver Spangled Hamburgh's feathers are beautifully captured in this chromolithograph, which was produced by Vincent Brooks Day & Son after an illustration by J.W. Ludlow for Lewis Wright's "The Illustrated Book of Poultry," published by Cassell in London in 1890. The Victorian craze for breeding and exhibiting exotic poultry reached fever pitch during this period, with ornithology and game birds being popular subjects for collectors and artists alike. Despite its ornamental value, it is important to note that the practice of cockfighting, which was once a common spectacle at poultry shows, is now considered cruel and inhumane. This image serves as a reminder of the rich history and diversity of poultry breeds, as well as the evolving attitudes towards animal welfare and entertainment.
