Celebrating 90 Years 1927 – 2017

To celebrate our 90th Anniversary, we designed in 2017 a limited edition replica of the original Omersa pig – 1st made by “Old Bill” in 1927! Production is limited to 90 pigs. The issue number is sewn on to the belly alongside our OMERSA badge which gives the year of manufacture.

Omersa badge and number

The picture below (on left) is of a pig dated 1931. They had very long noses and body. Our replica has slightly shorter features to make it a more attractive and is based on the pig dated 1958 on the right

 

Method of Construction

The same methods and tools as those originally employed are used to make the pig. The main difference is that the original pigs were made from pigskin. This ceased in the mid 1970’s when suitable pigskin was no longer available and cowhide used instead.

Main product features are:

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

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.

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.
