Original Vintage Sheep Stool by Hanns Peter Krafft for Meier, 1970s

About

Handcrafted sheep by Hans-Peter Krafft for German company Meier. The sheep is suitable as original seating or for decoration like a Lalanne's sheep. This original life seize sheep is a collector's item and will adds so much character and a statement to every room. The sheep is made of beechwood covered with real sheepskin and feature leather ears and glass eyes. If you want to use it as a stool - the back of the sheep is extra heavily padded. The sheep in life size provides a real eye-catcher. As the garden designer Madison Cox, a longtime friend of the Francois-Xavier Lalannes says “Having a sheep in your living room, as opposed to an armchair or a wood bench, is just pure fun,” . The company history of the family business Meier.Germany began in 1948 with the art craftsman Hermann Meier. With great skill and almost without machines, he managed the production and sale of rocking horses almost alone. And his family could live with it. The "Gäules-Meier" from the upper Zabergäu becomes a concept, which is also known at the Toy Fair in Nuremberg. In 1970 his son Horst Meier took over his father's business and was looking for an extension of the assortment. Thanks to the cooperation between the visual artist Hanns-Peter Krafft and the entrepreneur Horst Meier, in addition to the traditional rocking horses in plush and fur, an extended range of artisan objects and high-quality decorative items has now been produced. The absolute star, however, advanced the sheep, especially the life size sheep.
