Omersa stuffed leather animals



 I found these cute little creatures while searching for something else and I couldn't resist post about them.   These stuffed leather animals are made in England by a company called Omersa.  They come in many different animal shapes and sizes, some as big as 6 feet tall therefore most of them are made to order.  They were very popular in the 60's.  Very well constructed.  They are made inside with a wooden and metal frame which make them strong enough to take the weight of our bodies, then they're covered in woodwool which gives them the desired shape and then finished with cowhide leather.  As consequence no two animals look the same.  Remember my obsession and disappointment with this Rhino?  I told him I was going to find one that fits all my needs one day.  I think I did and I might have changed directions too because look at that sheep...
