This charming bronze Porte Montre came with us from France. It is made of gilded bronze in the shape of a curled griffin with the hanger on the curved tail. The griffin sits on a bronze and green onyx pedestal. There is a bronze plate on the bottom. The whole piece is very well made, but does have a flaw: one corner is chipped. This can of course be turned to the back so it does not show. No other defects.
Measurements are: 3" by 3" and 7 3/4" tall.
