Antique Griffin Carved Walnut Wall Bracket.
Nicely sized at 21" long, 10.5" deep and 12" high, this late 19th century shelf is sure to garner stares from all who come across him. Gryphon or Dragon (my guess is dragon), he is beautifully carved with wonderful details that bring a little extra, old world elegance and Gothic Revival feel, to any room.
He does have some wear with a crack to the scroll work that has some shifting and some wear to the far right of the same side. I have moved him around quite a bit, hung him on the wall with various weighted objects on the shelf, and he is completely stable. Additionally, these flaws are only noticeable from the front under relatively close inspection. Please view the last 4 photos below and feel free to contact me for additional photos.
A strikingly unique piece in every way.
