Key Chain – Screech Owl (George Edwards Watercolor)


Within Drayton Hall’s Museum Collection are 21 watercolors painted c. 1733 by George Edwards, a British naturalist who is considered the father of British ornithology. These remarkable paintings were acquired by John Drayton (1715-1779) prior to Drayton Hall’s construction beginning in 1738, and serve as powerful artifacts illustrating his intellectual pursuits in natural history, both within and beyond colonial South Carolina.

The striking Screech Owl, with its penetrating stare, from the Lenhardt Collection of George Edward Watercolors, meticulously reproduced on a ceramic medallion, is a special and useful Drayton Hall keepsake.
