HUNTED BY H.R.H. EDWARD PRINCE OF WALES
A FINE ROWLAND WARD-MOUNTED BOAR TUSK TROPHY IN A GLAZED DISPLAY WITH CONTEMPORARY LANCE HEADS,
Together with a First Edition (1925) copy of 'H.R.H. THE PRINCE OF WALES'S SPORT IN INDIA' by Bernard C. Ellison F.R.G.S. C.M.Z.S. and a rare copy of Sotheby's New York 1997 slip-cased three-part auction catalogue 'The Duke & Duchess of Windsor'

The boar tusks mounted by Rowland Ward on an oak shield and inscribed in gold paint 'PATIALA 23.2.22 One Spear', surrounded by six varied examples of boar lance heads, the later scarlet baize-lined, glazed casing with cut-out at the rear to display the original Rowland Ward Ltd. Label with 'The Jungle', 167 Piccadilly, London W1 address, and also Sotheby's lot number stickers for Lot 3280 (2), September 19th 1997 'The Duke & Duchess of Windsor'.

The book details the Prince of Wales's tour in India and Burma from Bombay, November the 17th, 1921 to Karachi, March 7th, 1922. He was first introduced to the sport of boar hunting with lances in Jodhpur in the December of 1921 and quickly became an accomplished practitioner of the sport. On the 24th February 1923, in Patiala and in the company of H.H. the Maharajah of Patiala, he achieved the ultimate 'one spear' kill which this trophy celebrates. The book has a colourfully detailed account of the day's sport, written by Sir Godfrey Thomas who was himself a participant.

In 1997 Sotheby's held an extraordinary nine day auction of 'Property From the Collection of The Duke & Duchess of Windsor, including property from the public rooms of the Duke and Duchess of Windsor's former residence in Paris and historical material from the collection'. The catalogue was printed in two parts, 'The Public Collections' and 'The Private Collections', together with an additional historical 'Information' supplement, all presented in a hard slip case. This trophy features in 'The Private Collections' as part of Lot 3280

You'd have to be a skilled horseman to do pigsticking like that, with a very level headed & intelligent horse to boot as well!

“One Spear” , what a great trophy. I can’t imagine the skill of the horse or the rider to accomplish this feat.

Lancing a pig is probably easier than lancing an Afghan, Zulu or Sudanese Fuzzy.

I do have a pig sticking lance head and lance base, made from stainless steel in India.

Need a lovely strong black bamboo lance shaft. My blacl bamboo plantation never got established and died out in a drought. Need to replant it.

I do have some shafts bought at the hardware store made from some hardwood. Not sure if it is strong enough, or would be just for the wall.

No saddle.

No horse.

No horse riding skills.

Some of these old prints and paintings while often a little quaint are wonderful. A series of them as print recreations framed for a wall would make a lovely and interesting decoration. At least to people like us.
