About

A wonderful collectors example of the 'Seal' leather animal by Dimitri Omersa for Abercrombie and Fitch, circa 1970s. This example is in beautiful lightly aged with light patina. Sturdy and structurally sound, this seal is ready to be used as a fun doorstop, a large paperweight, or use as a designer floor or tabletop sculpture / work of art or a friendly companion to an otherwise lonely house dog or cat. Omersa's designed leather animals for Omersa Leatherworks of England, Omersa & Company, Liberties of London and Abercrombie and Fitch. Excellent early production original of this design, ideal collectors example or for an interior design client. Omersa made his first leather animal, a pig, in 1927 and from there created a full suite of interesting and charismatic creatures. Each leather animal is of the highest quality, beautifully stained and waxed. This example is one of the earlier ones, which are rare and highly sought after by collectors therefore very few on the resale market. Incredible opportunity for a collector or design enthusiast to have an original production example in beautiful patinated condition and to keep and collect for years to come. As you can see in our photos, we have a large collection of Omersa leather animals. Some examples include rhinos, dogs, kangaroo's, bears, bulls, elephants, hippopotamus, pigs, horses and donkey's, ducks, and much more. And we have stock in various sizes for many of the animals, such as 4 different sizes of the Rhinos. This Omersa footstool would work great in a Postmodern, Mid-Century Modern, Farmhouse, Scandinavian Modern or Danish modern home or penthouse apartment but could also look fantastic in a contemporary or Zen / Minimalism room. Also consider mixing it up in a traditional, transitional, classical or Art Deco room with a splash of juxtaposition. Would also be an apt choice in a commercial project such as a hotel lobby lounge or members club, creative design studio or high-rise executive office. MEASUREMENTS:: H 12.5" x W 25" x D 34" CONDITION: Very good vintage condition with no rips, tears, or major issues. Attractive light age and patina throughout. Some light scuffs and scratches. The heavier patina spots are shown in the photos. One strip approximately the size of a band-aid on its back and another on its stomach. Desirable and very attractive example. Sturdy and structurally sound. Ready to be used immediately.
