Truly enduring objects of quality and beauty, our leather animals are—more than just stunning conversation pieces—handmade from full-grain Connolly hide, the same leather that’s used by Rolls Royce for all their seats. And the saying that “a community that works together, stays together” is no truer than in this instance, because here’s an enterprise in which virtually the entire little village of Coningsby in Lincolnshire, England, is involved. Since they were first produced in 1927 for Liberty’s of London, these leather animals have been capturing the hearts of collectors around the world. Hunt, together with Liberty’s and Fortnum and Mason, is one of very few retailers to offer these leather heirloom pieces, and has been doing so since the late 1970s, when our founder John Hunt first hand delivered a king rhino to the Packer residence for Kerry.
