    back in the mid 1960's when i first got into taxidermy there was an old taxidermist in my town by the name of Billy Sedberry he had been doing taxidermy most of his life he was in his eighties at that time several years later when he died his son gave me some of his tools and stuff anyway these fish eyes were in some of his things his son said he hand made all his fish eyes , they are chipped out of glass jars and hand painted we sure have it a lot easier these days.

    I heard that back in the 40's, taxidermists had to walk 10 miles uphill BOTH ways just to get those glass jars!!!

    Pretty cool. Those folks back then REALLY had to think on their feet to come up with creative solutions to everyday problems. We've got it pretty easy...
