187 Year Old Indian Royal Swag-Wagon Up for Auction
Koenigsegg, Lamborghini and Ferrari, when combined, have nothing on this horse-drawn Indian Royal Carriage from 1825. Formerly owned by the Maharaja of Mysore from Southern India, this 18th century buggy is set for auction in the UK near the end of the month. The one-of-a-kind antique carriage was touted around Europe by what some historians believe to be His Royal Highness, the Prince of Wales. Complete with an ornately finished cruciform body with a vaulted, domed roof, situated atop double elliptic springs and iron-bound artillery patterned wheels, the carriage also boasts a base olive green paint and sixteen windows with drop-down, decorated panel shutters for privacy. It's like Bentley, before Bentley was Bentley. The two-horsepower luxury buggy will be set for auction on Saturday, November 24th at Historics at Brooklands in the UK and is estimated to fetch nearly £70-£100K.
