This is a great quartersawn oak griffin supported and hallmarked dinner gong. The platform is 14 1/2" by 5". There is a metal bell shape at the top which is almost 13" high. The wonderfully moulded platform is supported by 4 wonderful turned metal feet. The gong is supported on either side by metal winged griffins almost 6" high. The gong is engraved with what appears to be an island scene with palm trees. The unit comes with an oak handled metal striker. Both the striker and the gong are hallmarked, but I cannot read what it says. I believe all the metal on this item is nickel plated brass. In my opinion, the hallmarks have to do with previous silver plating. I will amend this description if I am able to make any discoveries in this regard. In any event, it is a very high quality item in absolutely perfect condition.
