Product Description

A beautiful leather elephant…

Although we are unsure of the exact age of this piece, we would suggest that it dates to the mid part of the 20th century onwards. Usually referred to as a ‘fireside elephant’, this is an elegant and charming piece. It’s really well made, probably with a straw interior giving it a little weight and then covered in a Brown leather. The complementary glass eyes and plastic tusks ensure this piece looks the part

This would look brilliant on display in ones home or certainly would create a talking point in a shop window or retail environment…

We are offering this piece in ‘as found’ condition, therefore there is some natural wear and tear. There are some surface scuffs and some small cracks to the leather in areas, yet we don’t feel anything is detrimental to the overall structure or indeed the look and feel. Notably the small imperfection under the top of the tail is solid and not fragile. Please do study the photos to help with your analysis as it would be hard to highlight all imperfections…

Please note : The elephant is of a dark Brown nature in colour. Our photographs show it to be more of a Black, due to the lighting
