Antique Leather Camel from Liberty of London
This antique leather Camel was probably bought from Liberty of London in the early 20th century.
It’s a good size & would have been bought for a children’s room. In fact a child could easily sit on it, because it’s very sturdy & in good condition. The leather is a lovely colour with lots of character & it has all the details a Camel should have. The eyes are particularly nice & look like they are glass.

The history of tea is long and complex, spreading across multiple cultures over the span of thousands of years. Tea likely originated in southwest China during the Shang dynasty as a medicinal drink. An early credible record of tea drinking dates to the 3rd century AD, in a medical text written by Hua Tuo. Tea was first introduced to Portuguese priests and merchants in China during the 16th century. Drinking tea became popular in Britain during the 17th century. The British introduced tea production, as well as tea consumption, to India, in order to compete with the China monopoly on tea.
