More plants and birds to identify!

City boy strikes again... several of these Stuart Strathearn engraved pieces are temporarily defined as flowers or birds  8)

Until someone who knows about these things passes by... :comp:

hi again!

don´t know wether the squirrel is red or grey, but my vote for the
flowers would be the following:
posy bowl - wild rose
honey jar - periwinkle (would be closest, though it normally has 5 petals, possibly unknown to engraver?)
specimen vase - sorry can´t find correct translation; either bluebell, bellflower or similar

Your game bird is a pheasant, and the bird of prey looks to me more like a pigeon or dove, based on the shape of the body and legs.  Hard to say, though.  Maybe someone will recognize the markings, particularly that patch around the bottom of the face and neck.

Interesting pieces.  It looks to me like some of the work was either done by sandblasting or was engraved then sandblasted over it.  There aren't the striations you normally get from wheel marks.

The specimen vase Dirk suggested bluebell for, is a harebell otherwise known as the Scottish bluebell. I agree with the posy (not poppies) bowl as wild rose and the preserve jar as periwinkle. The bird of prey is a big fat wood pigeon!

All fixed thank you. I guess the Prey on the box meant it was the Prey rather than a Bird of Prey - I had wondered about the lack of talons!
