George Washington's Coat of Arms was descended from his English ancestors and was brought to America in the 17th century when Washington's great grandfather emigrated to Virginia. The original Coat of Arms featured a raven on the top of the seal. Later, Washington substituted a griffin (a mythological creature with the body of a lion and the head of a hawk). The full Coat of Arms with the griffin was used on many pieces, including a silver coffee pot from which these desk pieces are derived. These polished and lacquered brass bookends are sold as a pair and measure 7" x 3 3/4" wide x 2 3/4" deep. Made in Virginia by Virginia Metalcrafters. Limited quantity.
