A griffin pin

October 31, 2008

This pin is based on a carving found on an original 18th Century Pennsylvania longrifle, by Christian Oerter. Known as the ‘Griffin gun’ for its spectacular carving, this is a true piece of American folk art. I have made a faithful rendering in sterling of this fabulous carving. This unique piece is engraved, sawn, polished and assembeld entirely by hand.
