We are excited to present this camel sculpture with lovely aged leather on hand-carved wood.
It has been made for Liberty's in London.
This full-grown and very realistic dromedary or camel has both great aesthetic and decretive value.
They have been made for the kids of the wealthy people that shopped by Liberty's.
Underneath the leather, the hide is a very well-carved wooden sculpture which is why the sizeable camel has such realistic features.
It is a very realistic sculpture and a good size, it also has the original leather which makes it even rarer.
We feel that the maker of this work of animal art has beautifully captured the look and soul of this majestic desert animal.
It also has its original glass eyes.
Knowing that it has been made and sold between the 1940s and 1950's it still is in a very beautiful condition.
We have cleaned, hand waxed and hand polished it.
Condition-wise, there will be some aged-related marks.
There are no rips or tears in the leather.
