This elephant foot stool is a wonderful example of the Abercrombie & Fitch leather animals produced by Omersa and Company, Lincolnshire, UK.There is a wonderful patina on this beautiful and solid piece. The stitching is good throughout and the overall condition of the leather is very nice. This elephant has been lovingly cared for, the tusks still adjustbut the tail is missing. The tail is made of a small strip of leather that can be easily replaced by your local shoe repairman. Leather animals from Abercrombie have become highly collectable over the years and this particular version is very rare. EnglandCirca 1950's

This vintage trunk down Elephant footstool was actually an earlier more collectable piece produced by Omersa and Company exclusively for the shop,Liberty's of Regent Street, London.This Elephant can be firmly identified as a earlier footstool as it is stamped faintly under the right ear,Libertys of London.Dimitri Omersa made the first leather animal (a pig) in 1927 for Libertys and introduced the second animal,the Elephant, in the late 50's, adding other animals to the line as well. The store has sold them ever since.Later, Omersa sold these animals in the U.S. market through the American company, Abercrombie and Fitch.
