Rated 5 out of 5 by Victorian Creature Welcomes Visitors The griffin is much better than the brick that formerly was the gate stop. It is navy and attractive. Wish you made a frog stop. August 9, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful Piece although this is a "doorstop" it's beautiful in design and finish. It can easily take center stage anywhere it's placed!! very heavy as well. April 27, 2015

Rated 5 out of 5 by Product just as described This product was just as described. It's a good size & works excellent. It is a really nice design, very well made, & looks great (just like the photo). It's heavy but not so heavy you can't pick it up. Very durable. It does the job! Would highly recommend! July 28, 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by What a Glorious Griffin! I received this iron doorstop as a gift some time ago. It is one of my favorite pieces. Solid construction that goes with almost any decor and suits almost any aesthetic, whether Medieval, Victorian, or Eclectic. It has all the beauty of a tabletop sculpture with all the utility and durability one would expect out of an iron doorstop. I've even used it as a centerpiece on occasion! It is just that lovely a work of art. For an iron piece, its details are finely wrought. and while I was worried about the balance of the piece -- what, with its outstretched paw and all -- I never had any problems in regard to it falling over, or breaking, or damaging anything. It doesn't have any felt pads on its feet, if you're concerned about sparing your hardwood floors, but those can easily be added without issue. I would absolutely recommend this item to other customers. March 29, 2012
Rated 0 out of 5 by I have these Griffins around my house. I use them as decoration and for door stops. I get compliments on them every time I have people over. You will not be disappointed in the quality. The picture does not even do it justice. It is even better looking in person. September 30, 2010
Rated 0 out of 5 by This wonderful piece is perfect for doors or on the fireplace mantle as a curiosity piece. It is very heavy weight and solid cast iron. The patina is wonderful and every detail of the griffin is there. I love the pose of the creature and I am very impressed with the workmanship. The new foundry pieces from Design Toscano are breathtaking and the price...unbelieveable!!! October 21, 2008
