    The South Indian cabinet engraved with the emblem of Tipu Sultan. (4,000-6,000) UPDATE: THIS MADE 8,000 AT HAMMER

    A South Indian cabinet at the James Adam Country House Collections sale in Slane Castle on October 13 is carved with the royal emblem of Tipu Sultan of Mysore.  The ebony and brass mounted two door cabinet on stand has been in an Irish country house for several decades, introduced there through an English relative.

    The basically 18th century cabinet with fitted interior is carved with foliage, plain and gilded winged eagles and the Fandaberunda (Berunda) bird.  The two headed mythological bird is the royal emblem of Tipu Sultan (1750-1799) also known as the Ti-ger of Mysore, and the official insignia of the State of Karnataka. He won important victories during the second Anglo-Mysore war and remained an implacable enemy of the British East India Company.  The cabinet is estimated at 4,000-6,000.
