See: Finch & Co catalogue no. 4, item no. 49, for a pair of preserved Siamese pigs from the Walter Potter Museum of Curiosities
Disturbing and scientifically instructive, natural deformities have always fascinated collectors of curiosities. Russia’s Tsar, Peter The Great amassed an 18th century collection of exquisitely preserved deformed babies contained and displayed in large glass jars, which can still be seen in his courtly Kunstkammer in St Petersburg.
