Zoo Line Wooden Hippo - Mid Century Modern Teak Hippo

This wonderfully whimsical teak hippo is a member of the much loved Zoo Line, a run of wooden animals sold as souvenirs at zoos in the late 50's. Much like the wooden animals of Kay Bojesen, this super fun hippo displays a very humorous take on the animal, and combines everything great about Danish design and vintage toy aesthetics. Marked "Copyright 1958 Zoo Line," this little guy is in great vintage condition, complete with his original tail. There is a small spot on his lower chin, visible in image 1, and the hinge on his mouth is slightly askew, though his mouth still shuts nicely. All in all, this piece is in great shape; furthermore, he still has his original Zoo Line sticker! With a small space inside his mout to store your jewelry, and with hinged eyes to boot, this wonderful teak hippo is everything we love about Mid Century design.
