Some time stains in the sky. Otherwise in good condition. A good impression.
An animated and decorative scene depicting a hunting party, preparing for a falconry expedition. The falcons are visible in the foreground, lined up on a perch, whilst in the background, a member of the party has already set off with his falcon perched on his glove and with a squire accompanying him alongside the horse, looking after the dogs. The scene is set outside the entrance to Haddon Hall, which was one of the country seats of the Duke of Rutland (acquired by the family through the marriage of Thomas Manners, 1st Earl of Rutland, and Dorothy Vernon, daughter of Sir George Vernon, the owner of the Manor).
The FHT aims to establish a portal for the world's falconers and other interested parties to access aspects of the sport's rich heritage by linking existing physical archives, including international private and public collections, through the medium of an electronic archive. This archive will feature falconry furniture, works of art, books, correspondence from leading falconers and film and photographic material for the education and interest of falconer and scholar alike. We hope that, whatever your background or interest in our sport, you may find something of value through our archive to deepen your knowledge, understanding and passion for falconry and will help us, through your support, to preserve this precious cultural heritage for future generations.
