This pair of heraldic beasts may have been carved as newel post finials of a grand staircase; or as finials for a church or a livery hall. In 20th century Britain, over 1,000 country houses were demolished.This was a hint of things to come. From the turn of the 20th century, interior woodwork, including complete panelled rooms, staircases and fittings such as these heraldic beasts secured an active market amongst rich Americans.
