Omersa Auction

The Omersa animal has many admirers all over the world. Many of our owners love to collect older pieces and add to their existing collections.

Owners contact us from time to time with pieces they wish to sell. We are piloting the set up this page where we will post pictures of animals that are “for sale”.

If you have an animal you wish to sell, please email us (info@omersa.co.uk) with your details and a clear picture of the animal you wish to sell. We will post the picture to this page. Any interested purchasers should email us and we will pass on the email to the seller. Information exchange can then take place between the two parties. We can always arrange for the animal to be re-stained, waxed etc before dispatch and arrange the postage.

We would like to know what price animals do end up trading for so we can build up a profile and be able to provide more accurate price guidelines in the future.

A customer has two fabulous Liberty of London Omersa vintage animals in need of a new loving owner. The donkey & the elephant. They have a lovely patina & have been well used. They look absolutely fabulous as they are with the worn look.

The donkey and elephant were the first 2 new animals to be added to the collection by Mr Omersa (after the pig). They are the mascots of the Republican and Democratic parties in the USA. Mr Omersa took the animals to the USA in the early 1960’s and won a gold medal at the Sacramento State Fair in 1963!
