Van Ingen leopard head taxidermy

The latest addition to the family – a superb piece of vintage Van Ingen taxidermy. Van Ingen were the taxidermist of choice to India’s Raj in the 19th and early 20th century. This leopard head is actually mounted on a black mahogany wooded shield favored by Rowland Ward – England’s finest taxidermist of the same period.

Van Ingen trophy heads are easily identifiable for their trademark snarling expression and lifelike features. Hope you like it as much as I do.
