Elephant – Large

Elephant

Our large leather elephant is a stately beast with lovely big ears and ivory leather tusks! He is too tall to be used as a footstool but can be used as a (very) occasional seat! Today wire is sewn in to the edges of the ears to keep them flapping!

The above is a picture of an old “Dimitri Omersa” leather elephant, circa mid 60’s to 70’s. A lovely example of a much loved elephant! Our leather is “unfinished” and is left to develop natural scuff marks reflecting the wear and tear of life.

Product Care

To keep your animal in the best of health for a long and happy life, may we suggest the following care tips:

  • Dust and apply a coat of NIKWAX Waterproofing Wax regularly (say every 6 weeks). DO NOT USE any spray or liquid polish as these will damage the colour
  • Keep your animal dry and away from water. Regular coats of NIKWAX will help waterproof your animal against water damage
  • Keep your animal out of direct sunlight and or direct heat to prevent leather from drying out
  • Supervise very young children playing with an animal. They have a tendency to put tails, ears etc in their mouth and the stain may come off. NOTE: the stain is NON TOXIC
  • The product is designed primarily as a decorative item for the home. It is NOT built to furniture standards and the internal frame will only stand a certain amount of rough play!

If the colour of your animal does fade and you would like to darken up, please purchase a bottle of stain to apply. To get best results, Nikwax should be applied after re-staining.

History of the Elephant

The elephant was one of the first new pieces designed by Dimitri Omersa in the very early 1960’s. He offered it to Liberty’s of London as an exclusive item. The word “LIBERTY” can be found embossed on the underside of the ear of these older elephants, circa 1960- 1974.
