- leather mane, tail and saddle
- Internal metal frame
- Filled with woodwool (shredded pine wood)
- Hand filled to create shape and features
- Hand stained mahogany brown
- Suitable for use as a doorstop
Additional product features:
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. The mane and tail are made from the same leather and are hand stripped. The saddle is also made with leather and has been left unstained; it can be removed.
Inside there is a sturdy metal frame which gives the product weight and substance. This size is designed primarily as a decorative piece for the home /office and with a weight of approx 1.1kg can be used as a doorstop.
Woodwool (shredded pine wood) is hand worked around the frame to give the shape of the animal. This is a physical process and the most time consuming. As no two pieces of leather behave in the same manner and each piece is hand made, each animal is slightly different.
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 may 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.
