This attractive genuine Zebra skin rug is in immaculate condition and makes a decorative rug, wall hanging, or throw for a sofa, for example. (A smart decorator’s lot.)
It is stamped as such on the reverse of the hide. This demonstrates that this particular zebra skin has come from a sustainable source.
Decorative use of a zebra skin rug
Clever interior decorators have used a zebra skin rug to cover Regency period items of furniture. Regency furniture often has animal designs and motifs incorporated. For example, stools, chairs, sofas and ottomans. They also are very impressive as wall hangings. The vibrant natural designs will serve to augment any plain background.
With the recent focus on conservation, wild animal hides have become very difficult to source other than from sustained, farmed herds. Box House Antiques are particularly circumspect in guaranteeing all animal derived products in our catalogue are from CITES approved sources.
