G White of Salisbury 1870's onwards

White's cases are distinctive in their abstract. Unlike Spicer and Gunn where they tended to go for a true representation of the groundwork. The cases tend to be more stylised with a subtle abstract watercolour wash to the rear of the case and well executed groundwork. Simulated clouds similar to that used by Cooper are normally incorporated into the cases also. His cases tend to be 3 sided glass in construction. The sides of the cases were nearly always taped also, rather then using perhaps wooden beading. We have however also encountered pictureframe cases, the Golden Plover being an example of this style of casework. The taxidermy is always well observed, very much in the style of Farren and Chalkley of Winchester. White also like many regional taxidermists tended to concentrate on locally sourced specimens.
