Category: .
A fantastic example of a Van Ingen tiger skin rug.
The tiger is the largest cat species, most recognisable for their pattern of dark vertical stripes on reddish-orange fur with a lighter underside. Bengal tigers are the national animal of both India and Bangladesh.

Van Ingen & Van Ingen (1900–1999) were Indian taxidermists located in Mysore, South India, best known for their big cat taxidermy trophy mounts. The firm was established by Eugene Van Ingen in the 1890s. His sons later ran the business until it closed in 1999.

Van Ingen & Van Ingen served the highest in international nobility as well as the Maharajas of India, preserving their hunting trophies in the most lifelike poses and in the utmost beauty, with attention to detail like no other in their time of operation.
