Jaguar The Leaper Pouncing Cat Display Pieces
We are pleased to offer these fabulous original Jaguar Cars showroom ‘The Leaper’ pouncing cat display pieces.
These stunning looking items replicate the iconic hood ornament that was seen on most Jaguar Cars since the company’s inception in 1935. Unfortunately, In 2005, Jaguar decided to remove the ‘Leaper’ from its models in line with safety standards and the company taking a much more modern, svelte, and aerodynamic approach.
These chromed plastic pieces were only produced for a few Jaguar Cars main showrooms in the U.K. We have learned that many of these were destroyed when the company ether refurbished or closed down showrooms. So it is believed not many of these display pieces survived.
We have in or inventory one large half side pouncing left ‘Leaper’. Its size is from the tip of the nose to tip of the tail is a huge 88 inches (224cm). Its widest measurement points are 18 inches (46cm) and 10 inches (26cm) at its deepest.
We also have four smaller ‘Leaper’s’ these consist of two right pouncing and two left pouncing. These can either be displayed as one half on a wall or as two opposite half’s that can be joined together to make a full complete pouncing ‘Leaper’ making a spectacular display, that would be an eye-catching addition to any collection. The size of these smaller ‘Leaper’s’ is tip to tip 62 inches (158cm), 13 inches (33cm) wide and 8 inches (20cm) deep.
We would like to point out that there as some light display marks/scratches on these items. These could quite easily be refurbished but due to them having a bright chrome finish, these marks are barely noticeable.
We would also like to point out these items are stored in our U.K. office and shipping to overseas destinations would be priced at the buyer’s preference.
