The Growling Griffin Foundry Iron Doorstop
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.

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!

I love this item. It is very heavy, with a beautiful design. It is solidly built, and large. It makes an impressive statement.

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.

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.

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!!!

This Growling Griffin is such a work of art. If is a very weighty piece and is definitely great as a door stop. I love every aspect of it and the patina is very well done. This is a must have piece! Design Toscano packs and ships this perfectly and mine arrived in perfect condition. I still couldn't believe the price!
