These figures are made of Jewelry Pewter. Read below to find more information about each plaque and the Poultry, Waterfowl, Pigeon, and Rabbit breed figures available.

Our Specialty Award Plaques have been used for the past several years among the Poultry, Waterfowl, Rabbit, and Pigeon fanciers throughout the United States, Canada, and many foreign countries, including many national events. Many shows consider them as a calling card because of their quality and artistic value, and the recipient is able to take home a nice award featuring his or her favorite breed.

Bobby is a life-long poultry exhibitor and also a professional bird sculptor who realized the need for a nice, prestigious wall plaque, as opposed to just another trophy that collects dust.

Each of the breed figures on the 10 x 16 Walnut Plaque is intricately detailed, about four inches in height and silver in color to match the engraving and the silver plate behind the engraved plate. The remainder of the figures on the other size plaques are smaller figures of your favorite breed; these figures are made of Jewelry Pewter to match the engraving, the silver plate behind the engraved plate, and the wreath holding the figure.

Prices of individual plaques are given with the pictures and descriptions of each below.

Please remember to plan your orders as far in advance as possible, in case we are out of a product. All of these products take time to produce; in order to not be disappointed, don't wait until two weeks before a show to order. We do not do any engraving until we receive payment. If you have any questions, just give us a call at 903-785-0206, prior to 9 p.m. CST., or write Bobby Castlebury, 664 Farm Road 1510, Brookston, TX 75421-2732. You may also e-mail us. We are in the Paris, Texas, phone book and live just outside the city limits of Paris.


The 6 x 8, 8 x 10, and 9 x 12 Awards are identical, except for the size of the plaque. The same size breed figures are used on both plaques. These figures of your favorite breed are made from Jewelry Pewter, making them silver to match the engraving and the silver plate behind the engraved plate. The wreath surrounding the Pewter figure is also silver. The plaque makes an attractive presentation. Price of the 6 x 8, including the engraving, is $16.50. Price of the 8 x 10, including the engraving, is $21. Price of the 9 x 12, including the engraving, is $24. We appreciate your interest in our prestigious awards.

The 10 x 16 Walnut Plaque is a beautiful award. The others are really nice, but this one is very special. The approximately four-inch figure of your favorite breed of Poultry, Waterfowl, Pigeon, or Rabbit is placed on the black velvet in the opening. This engraved plate is 3" x 6"; plan your engraving carefully. The fewer words you use, the larger the possibility of letters. I enjoy using a script font when I engrave, so if you do not like the script, please let me know. Most people who order leave the type of engraving to me. We do appreciate your interest in our awards! Price of the 10 x 16 Walnut Plaque, including the engraving, is $70.00. Shipping on a single 10 x 16 plaque is $12. When adding one or more of this plaque to an order, include an extra $1 for each 10 x 16 ordered.

The 7 x 12 Walnut Plaque pictured at the left is the same plaque as the 10 x 16 shown above, only smaller. The photographs were taken under different conditions, and thus the different looks in the color of the walnut. The same pewter figure used in the 6 x 8, 8 x 10, and 8 x 10 Grooved Plaque is used for this prestigious award, with a different wreath used to complement the oval design. This award can be used for Grand Champion of Show if we do not have the larger figure necessary for the 10 x 16 award. The price of the 7 x 12 Walnut Plaque is $45, and this includes the engraving. The engraved plate now measures 3" x 5".
