The panel is absolutely beautiful and I am really thrilled to have it in the living room.I enclose a photo of our art deco living room with your panel in place. Many thanks again for such a great service (quality of the panel,the promptness of your responses to my emails and the solidity of the packaging). I am very happy. Veronique" "Hi Randall! Wow!!! The plaque arrived last week, perfect inside your exquisitely-made crate. The plaque looks super and am hanging it today above my fireplace. I'm going to take a queue from the picture you had on your site, and fabricate a frame similar to the one of the individual who included that lighting recess. It should make your wonderful relief work really stand out! If I didn't already have my walls all full, I'd purchase each of the three plaque series of that machine age-look reliefs.Your welcome to use this email as another testimonial, as you fabricate some knock-out products!! -Ken M, a happy camper, La Mesa California 4/19/09" Please read the entire page, it contains details on finishes, shipping and many answers to the more common questions people have. SIZE: Nominal 11" high by 7-1/2" wide, 6-1/2" deepFINISH SUGGESTED: I would go with the Old Limestone Grey History of the piece in my personal collection. The original sculpture used for these reproductions originated from a circa 1920 Chicago theater which was demolished a decade ago. The Griffin capital was on top of a support column. There are several configurations for such columns and capitals and this particular one is known as a "quarter round" and would be used in a location such as a column in a corner of two walls originally. The design features a winged bird, probably meant to be an eagle but it looks more like a chicken to me! While as a rule I no longer reproduce antique pieces since I sculpt my own models, I have a number of designs molded from antique pieces in my personal collection years ago sitting around in the studio storage, so I continue to offer casts of these few items. This design has not been offered on Ebay for several years as I rotated my offerings a few times, so I thought I would bring this one out again for a while since I have several casts of it on hand that I'd like to move out. General information applicable to all of my sculpturesPLEASE READ BEFORE EMAILING! My standard cast-stone is for INTERIOR OR UNDER A COVERED PORCH/SUN ROOM ONLY! Out in the garden they might last 4 or 5 years, maybe longer before showing weathering damage. If you are looking for something to place in the garden or build into a wall, I offer concrete as a special order item which takes approx 3 weeks. Not all pieces are available in concrete, inquire before ordering.All of my sculptures except the bookends have a heavy wire embedded on the back to hang them on the wall. I own the originals, copyrights in most cases, and the molds, I can produce any quantity and custom configurations as well. All of my sculptures are personally hand-cast in my home studio, they are signed, numbered and dated. These are cast and finished to order at the time of purchase.I do NOT ship outside the lower 48 United States! FINISHES AVAILABLE Hand cast replicas of my sculpture are available in interior cast-stone in your choice of several finishes. I offer 8 different finishes, (5 are shown below) on certain pieces- 2 metallics are standard. They vary from piece to piece as this is all hand done. Actual colors displayed on your monitor will vary as well. From left to right in the photo of 5 finishes below they are; Old Dirty Bronze (metallic) Dark gold aged weathered look Old Dirty Nickel (metallic) Dark silvery aged weathered look Dirty limestone grey- varies from near black to very light grey. Buff yellow. Red terra cotta.TaupeBright gold (metallic) Shiney bright gold Old Dirty Copper (metallic) Dark Reddish aged weathered look I use FedEx ground service for all shipments in the lower 48 states. I do NOT ship out of the USA. DISPLAYQUESTION: Aren't these too heavy for my plasterboard wall Randall?By no means! keep in mind- your walls weigh thousands of pounds and support the roof, they are built to support weight.HOWEVER- do not use plastic or self adhesive picture hangars of any kind, or try to simply put a screw into the thin sheetrock- these will not hold and are not designed to. The key is to install your mounting hooks or other hangars into the solid wood STUD inside the wall, these are typically spaced 16" center to center around the room. You should use an anchor rated to hold at least twice the shipping weight of the sculpture. To show proof of what a sheetrock wall can hold, here is a photo of two shelves I installed on my bedroom wall for original sculptures that I couldn't mount any other way, the brackets are screwed into the wall studs with 3" screws and there are two heavy angle irons 5/16" thick steel behind the shelves that are invisible.Total weight for the stone and terra-cotta shown- the top shelf is 175# and 125# for the lower shelf- 300# total; Here is one more photo, three of my casts shown mounted on another wall in the bedroom- Art Deco D3-R, Nr 649-R Pan center, and Nr. 120-R "Elizabeth" panel- these are likewise installed with hangars screwed into the solid wood STUDS on the sheetrock wall- 150# approximately; Another wall in the bedroom, the green copper cornice and the round lion on the left are antique salvage, the others are casts of my own sculptures. The D4-R panel can be seen on the right in the bright gold finish over the head-board.
