Jeckyll was commissioned by Barnard, Bishop and Barnards to design a cast-iron pavilion for the Philadelphia Centennial Exhibition of 1876.

A particular feature of the pavilion's structural decoration were the brackets. For the spandrels of these brackets, Jeckyll designed a variety of 'Bird and Flower' motifs including this one entitled 'Whitethorn with Pheasants'.


Barnard, Bishop and Barnard, 1876; Peter Ferriday, 1950s; by descent to Martin Ferriday.
