This variety was first exhibited in Bratislava in 1925, and was fixed in permanent standards in 1951. This variety, although informed of population decline, is very popular in the country of origin, and has also been raised in several countries in Europe. Varieties belonging to this type of pouter-cropper pigeons, informed can fly well, but the aspect of appearance is more of a concern in the development.
