EDITORS COMMENTS
This chromolithograph showcases a pair of Toulouse geese, a breed renowned for their distinctive dewlap and golden-laced plumage. The proud cock goose, with its silver-spangled wings and regal posture, stands at the forefront, while the hen, adorned with intricate feather patterns, follows behind. The image, titled "Toulouse geese with dewlap, cock and hen," was produced by Vincent Brooks Day & Son, based on an illustration by J.W. Ludlow for Lewis Wright's The Illustrated Book of Poultry, published by Cassell in London in 1890. The Toulouse goose, also known as the Mattawan or Toulouse-Lautrec goose, was a popular breed during the Victorian era, with breeders like James Watts achieving remarkable success. This image, in particular, highlights the winners of five first prizes at various shows, including the Crystal Palace in Birmingham in 1871 and the Birmingham Exhibition in 1871. The Victorian craze for ornithology and exotic poultry breeding is evident in the intricate detail of this print. The geese's plumage, with its gold and silver accents, would have been highly prized for both their visual appeal and their potential as game birds. While the image may evoke thoughts of cockfighting, it is important to remember that this print was produced during a time when such practices were common and not necessarily a reflection of contemporary attitudes towards animal welfare. This print offers a glimpse into the rich history of poultry breeding and the ornithological fascination that captivated Victorian society.
