Leather doorstop made by Dimitri
Omersa for sale by Abercrombie and Fitch, circa late 1950's -70's.
Omersa was a Yugoslav who emigrated to Great Britain after WWII
and was retained by Liberty of London to make leather animals
for footstools along with other items with scrap leather from
furniture products. They proved to be very popular and eventually
Omersa began his own company and forged a relationship with Abercrombie
and Fitch to market them in America. Dimitri passed away in 1975
and his wife, Inge continued the business for a short time thereafter.
This doorstop was one of the other products that he and his wife
made and was marketed by A&F. It is relatively uncommon.
In very good original condition with some expected wear from
