Collectors of Natural History & Taxidermy

Welcome to

van Ingen Mysore Collectors


We are collectors of museum quality taxidermy from the British Colonial rule in India, specialising in tiger, leopard and lion. We predominantly collect fine examples with the intent of preserving pieces for future generations. We also buy, sell and restore these antiques. All items are legally CITES compliant, antique pre-convention, nothing modern.

Why is natural history important?

Study & Education

Preservation allows us to study the animal up close, promoting education and care for a species

a Bygone Era

Artefacts of a bygone era, are a crucial part of history that should not be forgotten

Artistic Preservation

Preserving what was once living is an art form in itself, to be admired for generations to come.

The Future

To acknowledge our past, is crucial to ensure we can shape the future and conserve endangered species

“Preserving natural history is important; because it is maintaining the natural beauty of what was once living, potentially sparking interest in future generations to conserve the future of a living species”
