Griffin Pin

SKU 21569

The Washington family coat-of-arms is surmounted by a "flying griffin," a mythological creature that was featured on the family crest for generations.
George Washington placed the crest -- a winged lion's body with a bird's head -- on many of his most important possessions, including his bookplate, silver plate, and presidential coach. In 1757 Washington acquired a mahogany version of his coat-of-arms, which he placed in the front parlor, "the best room in my house."

This pin is a beautiful adaptation and is available in 24kt gold plated over bronze for $46.00, in sterling silver for $58.00 (not shown), and in 14kt Gold for $1495.00.

Made in the USA.
