1878 – A Bird’s Nest


“A Bird’s Nest – by Harrison Weir” is a full page book plate image, taken from the “Chatterbox Album of Animals”, published by W.W.Gardner, circa 1878. The short anecdote accompanying the illustration, reads as follows: “A servant laid on the grass to bleach a pair of knitted garters and three pieces of lace. On going to fetch them, all except one garter had vanished, and she thought some one had taken them for a joke. But a short time after, the gardener saw the missing garter hanging from the branches of a Scotch fir-tree; and on climbing the tree he found a Missel-thrush’s nest, in which the three pieces of lace were beautifully entwined.”

Prints currently available in A4, A3 and A2 sizing options.
