Description

A female aberration the like of which has surely never been seen! An extraordinary var of great age: 1880. This is not mint, indeed a bit rubbed and there is a not too skillful wing repair. It has been through the collections of venerated collectors: A.S. Meek, Standish Webb and PM Bright. Lot 161 7.V.1942 at Stevens Auction Rooms. That's quite a history!
