About this item

A beautiful and original example of the iconic pig footstall made in England by Omersa. c.1950
Commissioned by Liberty of London, and later by Abercrombie & Fitch, since the 1920s, the pig has been a staple feature in Omersa’s catalogue right up to the modern day. This example would be similar in size to the medium footstall.
A rare chance to own an all original Omersa footstall with bags of character, charm and wonky snout!
It seems that the first leather pig came into being almost by accident when ‘Old Bill’, who worked making hand luggage for Liberty’s of London, wondered what could be done with the leftover leather. He came up with the idea of a stuffed leather pig footstool! The first pig was sold through Liberty’s in 1927 and Liberty’s has stocked the animal ever since. In those days the pigs were made from pigskin and had very long noses!
