BIKANER. A vintage portrait of H.H. Ganga Singh, Maharaja of Bikaner, mid 1890s


Bikaner. An oval vintage photographic portrait of a young H. H. Maharaja Ganga Singh of Bikaner in the uniform of his Camel Corps. The portrait measures 5 x 3½ ins visible in an old brown card window mount. There is a very small hair line crack to the right hand edge in line with the top of the turban. The Maharaja is shown three quarter length, his left hand on his sword, which appears to be of the 1831 British General Officer’s pattern – a model still in use today in the British Army. The portrait dates from the mid 1890s.    feb20/8
