A wonderful curiosity piece, an unusual and charming leather model of a Gorilla. Not totally sure of age, but is clearly very old and would estimate early 20th century. The leather appears in very good original condition, with I would say, original glass eyes. His face is actually really rather charming and not at all difficult to live with. He sits supports himself very well as can be seen in the pictures. The leather has obviously worn in places, commensurate with age, which gives a great patination. The surface is brighter in places, and duller in others, probably due to wherever it has sat towards the light or dust perhaps. but given it's condition, I would say it's been well looked after or simply stored away somewhere for a long time. A novel, intriguing piece and certainly decorative.

Would make a great gift for someone who collects or appreciates curious objects, a good prop or perfect for the Cabinet of Curiosities that some collectors keep.
