The business of taxidermist E. Allen & Co was established, according to their case labels, in 1846, but Allen did not actually take over the business until about 1880. On his earlier labels, it states that it had formally been the business of Mr. Ripley. Allen's taxidermy cases, which are found more frequetly, are usually of the box type, and can be considered to be very nice.
We have bought major collections from museums and private collectors.

Ayre & Co does not source modern taxidermy specimens that have been killed for the purpose of taxidermy. Our modern taxidermy is mainly roadkill and catkill as these are sadly the top two threats to British wildlife. We also get animals that have died of old age, largely from zoos and falconers.
Antique pieces for us are another matter. Although some of these old specimens were hunted, we see no harm in trading them today.
Destroying them will not bring the animal back.
Taxidermy law can be complicated. We make it our business to know the laws surrounding the trade, keeping up to date with changes in current legislation so you can buy in confidence.
