 Richard E. Bishop Ltd.

In the 1930s, no name was more recognized in the world of American game-bird etchings than Richard E. Bishop. A renowned game-bird artist, author, conservationist and sportsman, Bishop was the designer of the third Federal Duck Stamp. His work is treasured throughout national museums and by those fortunate enough to own them. For years, Richard E. Bishop's crystal and fine china was reserved for Dignitaries and Heads of State. Now you can give it as a valuable gift, or retain them as personal mementos.

Bishop glassware and its legendary bird depictions will become a lasting treasure. Our glassware is kiln -fired with meticulous care and craftsmanship, right here in the USA. Available in optic or standard glass.

About Richard E. Bishop

Richard E. Bishop traveled throughout North America and to the Scottish Moors to study, record, and film birds with both still and slow motion cameras. He produced images of many types of birds and game, but his specialty was waterfowl and upland game birds. Throughout his life, he handled all aspects of the printing process, personally inking the plates and pulling the prints. While Bishop's prints are subtle and elegant, his oil paintings are brightly colored for advertising purposes. Bishop in most respects was self-taught. He appropriated the techniques and nuances of etching, dry point, and aquatint---through trial and error, relying on his critical, engineer's eye to guide his hand. He built his own printing press for his limited editions, keeping the entire printmaking process in his own hands.
