Leather Lion

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

Large

Lion

  • Code: AFR/0102
  • Dimentions (mm): 760(L) x 310(W) x 605(H)
  • Weight: Approx 11KG

 

Our leather lion is an impressive piece with his full leather mane which is hand dyed, cut and stripped before attaching to the main body of leather. This size is slightly tall for  use as a footstool but can be used as an occasional seat.

Main product features are:

  • Top grain “unfinished” cowhide leather
  • hand cut leather mane
  • Internal metal and wooden frame
  • Filled with woodwool (shredded pine wood)
  • Hand filled to create shape and features
  • Hand stained mahogany brown
  • Height to top of back

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.

History

The lion was first introduced in the 1960’s. In those days it had “bootee” feet.

 

In 1974, an Arabian prince commissioned a golden lion. These were available until the late 80’s when the colour was discontinued.

Inside there is a sturdy metal and wooden frame which enables the product to be used as a footstool. We consider this size to be too small for use as an occasional seat due to the shorter back length.
