Our animals are generally MADE TO ORDER. We hold limited stock. Please allow 5-6 weeks for manufacture to avoid disappointment.

Large

Galapagos Turtle

  • Code: GAL/7102
  • Dimentions (mm): 950(L) x 760(W) x 350(H)
  • Weight: Approx 11KG

This leather Galapagos turtle makes a magnificent pouffe which can be used as a footrest. The “shell” is made from a patchwork of leather and once stained and polished gives a lovely tortoiseshell effect.

A separate quote is required for delivery outside of the UK mainland. The actual weight of the piece is approximately 11kg but the packed box is too large for delivery through the postal and courier  systems. Please contact us should you require this service.

Main product features are:

  • Top grain “unfinished” cowhide leather
  • Internal wooden frame with metal neck extension
  • Filled with woodwool (shredded pine wood)
  • Hand filled to create shape and features
  • Hand stained mahogany brown
  • Suitable for use as a pouffe or footstool
  • Height to top of back for foot rest

 

Additional Product Features are:

The leather is top grain British sourced cowhide leather tanned specifically for our purposes. The leather is “unfinished” ie it has not been coated, filled or embossed in any way. It is left to develop natural scuff marks reflecting the wear and tear of life.

Inside there is a sturdy metal and wooden frame which enables the product to be used as a footstool. It can be used as an OCCASIONAL seat and the frame will withstand average adult weight. BUT please be aware it is not built to furniture standards and is primarily a decorative piece for the home.

Woodwool (shredded pine wood) is hand worked around the frame to give the shape of the animal. This process is time consuming and physical! As no two pieces of leather behave in the same way and each piece is hand made, no two animals are the same and sizings given are approximate.

Once assembled, the leather is stained to give an “antique” effect in mahogany brown, then waxed and polished to give a luxurious finish. The stain used is water based and can be susceptible to water damage as the leather takes time to absorb the stain. Please apply coats of clear wax polish in its early life to help seal in the stain and keep the leather in good condition. Nikwax Waterproofing wax is an excellent product and can be bought on our site under CARE PRODUCTS
