Hippo Ornament & Paperweight
Add a splash of safari fun to your home with this cast aluminium hippo ornament. Ethically made from recycled aluminium, it can be used as an ornament, decor piece, or paperweight.
The design makes it look as if the hippo is wallowing in a pool, partly submerged whilst having a bath. You can put it on a mantelpiece or coffee table, or even on a tea tray for a touch of whimsy.
Made of recycled aluminium, its texture is a satisfying mixture of smooth surfaces and contoured details.
Dimensions: 10.5 cm x 5 cm x 1.5 cm.
Part of The Aluminium Range by The Impala Collection
Our inaugural collection, The Aluminium Range is inspired by African landscapes and wildlife. The tableware and home accessories are contoured and indented in a way that makes you want to feel them with your own hands. The metallic silver colour of the aluminium gives the pieces a sense of luxury, and the organic designs give them character and depth.
Small asymmetries and variations are a celebration of their handmade origin. The items are hand-cast from recycled aluminium – they’re not mass produced and you won’t find them elsewhere in the UK. The pieces are made in artisan batches in Zimbabwe under Fair Trade principles, supporting local producers.
Each piece truly is a one-of-a-kind. They are carefully and stylishly packaged, making them excellent gifts for weddings, birthdays, Christmas, anniversaries and more.
