An armchair made of one of the most dangerous and skillful predators in the world – the Nile crocodile, the size of which is terrifying – more than 5 meters long and weighing over 500 kilograms

 

1. Rarity and value

The only armchair in the world with an author’s design made of crocodile skin, in which 98% of the texture and claws are preserved.

Crocodile hunting in Africa is strictly regulated – one needs expensive permits and an experienced team to get a trophy. A separate permit is required to take them out of Africa.

The design of the chair will say a lot about its owner – a connoisseur of spectacular objects, striking attention to detail and finishing

The head of a captured crocodile is a separate trophy that can be bought.

 

2. History of discovery

A team of 10 experienced specialists hunted a crocodile for 3 weeks in 2015 in South Africa on a private trip.

Larger species are more difficult to detect as they are deeper in the water.

 

3. Human touch

A taxidermist with 20 years experience processed the skin over 12 months.

An additional 6 months were spent on making the armchair.

The frame of the armchair is made of precious woods.

 

4. Certificates of Authenticity and Export Licenses

Complete set of CITES certificates from Africa to Dubai
