Thanks Michael for the additional information!
Thanks Joanna for your comments. The decoration on top of the Maharana Fateh Singh's elephant is a golden lion. In the portrait of Maharana Bhim Singh of Mewar, it is a white bird (perhaps a goose) that is held by the attendant and dangling in front of the horse.
I enjoyed reading your blog post on Fath ‘Ali Shah and thought you might be interested to learn that the British Library has two portraits of the ruler: http://www.bbc.co.uk/arts/yourpaintings/paintings/fath-ali-shah-king-of-persia-17971834-191067 One is currently on display in the Asia and Africa Reading Room. The other is in storage.
