For sale is a Beautiful Mahogany Mounted Taxidermy Common Pheasant (Phasianus colchicus). Unfortunately the photographs do not do this beautiful piece justice. The mahogany base on this beautiful mount is absolutely stunning, I believe it’s come from a Victorian recycled mirror, so please see photos for more details. 

 

The common pheasant (Phasianus colchicus) is a bird in the pheasant family (Phasianidae). The genus name comes from Latin phasianus, "pheasant". The species name colchicus is Latin for "of Colchis" (modern day Georgia), a country on the Black Sea where pheasants became known to Europeans. Although Phasianus was previously thought to be closely related to the genus Gallus, the genus of junglefowl and domesticated chickens, recent studies show that they are in different subfamilies, having diverged over 20 million years ago.
