Pigeon Fancier's Certificate

Pigeon Fancier's Certificate

35.00

A prize certificate for coming 3rd in a pigeon race, offered by the pigeon keepers club of Pěstitelská, a village on the outskirts of Prague.

Keeping pigeons, or pigeon 'fancying' has been practised across the world going back 10,000 years. It reached it's peak in the 20th century, when it was a popular pursuit for working men across Europe and the United States. The pride and dedication that these men show for their hobby is reflected in this print - a third place trophy for a minor race, carefully framed and preserved for almost 70 years. A perfect gift for any pigeon fancier or person interested in this rich folk tradition.
