A fierce combination of lion and eagle, the griffin has been a symbol of heraldry since medieval times. Cast from the original antique Victorian mold using the ancient sand cast method to capture each detail, our Design Toscano-exclusive, authentic foundry iron casting is hand painted one piece at a time in an aged iron finish with gold highlights. Sure to impress, makes a substantial doorstop, bookend or enviable housewarming gift. 13½"Wx4½"Dx8½"H. 11 lbs.
I absolutely love this figure. It looks like a true antique, yet it fits with other decor very nicely. My husband, who is blind, even held it in his lap, and ran his hands all around it and decided it was a very nice figure too. Having his sight, at least most of his life, he knew for many years that he was going to be completely blind, and now he can visualize things from feeling it or from my descriptions. We go on trip, cruises, etc. can I describe the sky to him, what the parks looks like, the buildings, and so much more. He enjoys the vacations very much. And I want him to a "normal" life as long as he can, with help. I include him in many things - like seeing by description or feeling.
Glad to hear these, and thank you for an awesome review.
It's a beautiful piece,and quite heavy. While it would certainly do as a doorstop..its to majestic to use as one.
Was a very professional transaction, thank you
Thank you Keith for a wonderful review. Thank you for shopping with us and welcome again and again.
The item is absolutely beautiful very heavy! where I had a problem was the packaging very poorly done arrived on time with one of the wings broken return policies are a nightmare. I have a beautiful piece with a broken wing.
This item was something unique to purchase for my son-in-law Griffin. I thought it was a perfect idea and he loved receiving it.
