Budgerigars 1957
Anonymous Birds, Butterflies & Moths Budgerigars 1957 Budgerigars 1957 20 - Budgies remain popular pets and these card picture them in all their different colours. The numbered backs give further information for instance we learn that the White Blue Budgerigars are the most sensational colour ever bred and where often give as betrothal gifts by princes of the royal house of Japan and when a Mr Illingworth of England supplied two in this rare colour for a record £200 this forced up prices in the UK. These cards were obviously available from bird seed suppliers as the back informs us that once a set had been collected it should be returned to the supplier for a prize. The cards also state that the set would be returned and that is probably why the cards all have one corner officially cut so they could not be used to claim again. Among the birds featured are a Half-Sider Budgerigar which the card explains is a freak of nature and not breeding, Blue Pied Budgies first bred in Belgium, Rainbows which make lovely pets, an Albino which the card says don’t let out of its cage as it soon gets dirty, Light Yellows first bred in 1870 and Light Green Budgies who take their colour from the original wild birds in Australia. These cards are size 68 x 36mm.
