Having studied many beautiful antiques, I often wondered over the clawed feet adorning furniture, architecture, weaponry... Are they bird or reptile, demon or dragon? They express an otherworldly power, something grand and fearsome, primal and proud. There is something mythic in the image, and perhaps that is why it endures.
The Talon measures 2.2 inches / 5.3 cm in length, cast in a choice of solid bronze (photos 3 & 4) and sterling silver (photo 2), hand-finished to a deep antique patina.
There are three stone options: Fluorite (photo 2), Moss Agate (photo 3), and African Turquoise (photo 4).
