Here is another zoological pattern that was created to take advantage of the popularity of the London zoo. It is called simply "Zoological." It was made by Robinson, Wood & Brownfield in 1837. Printed in colors such as brown, purple, teal, pink and blue, each size and shape depicts a different animal enclosure. Kangaroos, elephants, zebras, tigers, and lions are only a few of the animal that appear in this series. The patterns don't seem to be copied from a source print; they look like romanticized versions of zoo animals and enclosures. The close-up of the lions shows sweet, almost human faces. The enclosure, even by 19th century standards, is much too small!
