Be in to win an Omersa leather hippo footstool, valued at $1750

Be in to win a collector’s item Omersa leather hippo footstool, valued at $1750.

Omersa leather animal footstools are lovingly handmade in England from top-quality leather, built around a steel frame. The large hippos are strong enough to sit on. These friendly animals, available from Cranfields, have personality and charm and are collector’s items.

Inside the animal there is a metal and wooden frame firmly surrounded with wood-wool; the wood-wool is hand worked to give the shape of the animal including the facial features. This stuffing is strong and stable so it won’t sag over time. Once assembled, the leather is hand stained to give an antique effect, then waxed and polished to give a luxurious finish.

Dimensions: 82 L x 28 W x 47 cm H

We’re giving away one large hippo footstool.
