A rather fabulous decorative leather rhino figure.
Attributed to Omerso, which first produced a figural pig 'foot stool' in the early nineteen hundreds for Liberty of London before moving onto other animal forms.
The rhino was introduced in the 1950's although there are earlier versions. The decorative animals were made from petite models up to very large store size displays. In addition to being sold at Liberty of London, the figures were later sold at the original Abercrombie & Fitch in NYC. Along with Omerso, other companies have produced these animals, the large number of them made early nineteen hundreds through the sixties.
Rhinoceros measures 13" x 7" x 4.5."
*I couldn't resist this antique fellow but please note, we should all be treading lightly on leather products. As a sometimes pescatarian, I buy non leather shoes, belts & bags. If an animal is going to be killed for meat, then their skin & every aspect of them should be used. If we were to all veer away from eating meat or even tread more lightly, then the world would be a better place.
