    Hi everyone...I’m in Australia and want help with selling on an antique tiger skin with a mounted head. My great grandfather bought it off a travelling merchant in the 30’s making the skin at least 80+ years old. It has been used throughout the decades as a rug and wall hanging so there is wear and tear to it. It has the typical antique red felt backing with a stuffed head attached.

    I’m wanting some genuine advice on how to sell as I know there are strict criteria with onsell etc. I don’t want to go through an auction house either as it is in need of repairs and there is no certification on our side as there was none when my great grandfather bought it. Sale price is another issue as no one is really giving me an indication of value.

    Many thanks in advance

    I’m pretty sure it is very illegal to sell, or buy, particularly to a person in another country, unless you can get valid legal documentation in both countries. No way I would buy it, especially advertised on the internet. Be very careful!
