The British taxidermist and entomologist James Gardner Sr made this Victorian glass dome with exotic birds. His studio and shop were located at 52 High Holborn Street and later at 426 Oxford Street in London. His well-executed birds and mammals were prized by royals such as Queen Victoria.

Besides freestanding domes such as this one, Gardner also made dioramas. Those significant ebonised box cases were painted landscape backgrounds in watercolour or gouache. Under the glass dome, we see different exotic bird species. For example, a superb Australian Fairywren (Malurus splendens) with blue and black plumage, a scarlet Tanagar or little songbird that lives in the canopy of the northwestern South American tropical forest in winter and in North America in spring, a green parrot etc.
