This is a wonderfully carved quartersawn oak winged griffin candle stand. It is 43" high with a nicely shaped and decorated 8" by 8" top. The top rests on a great carved capitol supported by a carved, tapered, fluted column, which is supported by 3 12" nicely carved winged griffins with great claw feet. The griffins are very finely carved in great detail which includes open mouths with their tongues protruding 3/4". The stand appears to have been refinished many years ago, and is in perfect condition with no chips, breaks,cracks, splits, or damage of any kind. This is the best of this form that we have seen, and it has been in my personal collection for 25 years.
