Corbett

2 South Street, Berkley Square, London. Taxidermy label notes that Corbett was Naturalist and Animal Preserver to their Royal and Serene Highnesses Princess Charlotte and Prince Leopold. As Princess Charlotte died in 1817, it is possible that Corbett held the earliest Royal Warrant for taxidermy if the warrant dates back to 1816/17.
