Post Lot Text
Towards the end of the 19th century it was fashionable for the Maharajahs to invite important foreign government officials and royalty for 'The Sport of Kings' tiger hunting. The Westerners regarded this hunt 'Shikar' as a symbol of their social status and kept claws and teeth as a memento which they often mounted into jewellery items.
Please note that this lot will require a CITES licence to leave the EU and will be subject to US Fish and Wildlife restrictions if it is to be imported into the USA
