Omersa leather animals are world famous. Handcrafted in Lincolnshire from the highest quality full-grain cowhide, they emerge as individuals with character and charm—one of the family, in fact. Members of course receive a preferential price, and many have already ordered the famous Yorkshire pig (created in 1927) and trademark rhinoceros, as well as hippos, terriers and dachshunds. Now we have another hand-picked menagerie member to show you—the Galapagos Turtle.
The Galapagos Turtle is a marvellous piece, and a substantial piece of furniture. He is not easily overlooked. The shell is a patchwork of leather, stained and polished to give a lovely tortoiseshell effect. Inside the leather is a metal neck attached to a robust wooden frame. Once assembled, the leather is stained to give an antique effect in mahogany brown, then waxed and polished to a luxurious finish. Dimensions are 950mm long by 760mm wide by 350mm tall (3ft 1in by 2ft 6in by 1ft 2in). Weight is 11kg (24lb).
Omersa animals make wonderful pieces of furniture, family friends, presents for your favourite people, and heirlooms for generations to come. There is even an Omersa Owners Club!
