You will marvel, as we did, at the intricately hand-carved detail of this mahogany heraldic griffin column destined to become a family heirloom. This signature work boasts carving that takes a master craftsman over a week to complete and will proudly display your fine art sculptures or act as a plant stand for your lush fern. Replicated directly from an 18th century original, our hand-carved solid mahogany signature furniture plinth is an investment in European style and sophistication. The maximum weight limit for this item is 22 lbs. Our mahogany English Griffin Pedestal is constructed with an engineered plywood bottom for supreme stability and strength.
