Pair of Opposing Terracotta Cast Stone Griffin Wall Plaques

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

In spite of the lead photo here which incorrectly depicts the same plaque twice, this is a wonderful pair of opposing wall plaques, fabricated from a rich terra-cotta-colored cast stone. Two opposing winged griffins are flanked by acanthus-decorated scrolls and rosettes. We rarely find pieces worthy or sufficiently large to hang on a garden wall, but these fit the bill nicely. One has had a recent repair that is invisible to the eye from the front side. Wonderful if you have a Greek or Roman-themed garden or terrace. Priced and sold as a pair. PLEASE NOTE that measurements below are for EACH plaque, but they should be mounted end-to-end for the most impressive statement.
