Description: Saint George's Trophy is a whimsical Celtic-style paperweight carved by Tom Sterling. It is based on the legend of Saint George the dragon slayer. Having killed a few dragons, who wouldn't take home a couple of trophies? A "dragon's tooth" and "dragon's scale" are set on a Celtic knotwork-pyrographed presentation stand.
The dragon's tooth was meticulously hand carved from hippo tooth. Detailed Celtic knotwork engraving was done toward the base of the tooth. The root of the tooth was carved from moose antler. The dragon's scale is engraved, carved and hot blued 1075 carbon steel. Like the presentation stand, the dragon's scale features detailed Celtic knotwork. The presentation stand incorporates pyrographed Pacific yew wood with black walnut.
The paperweight measures approximately 7 inches in length and 4 inches in width. It is approximately 3 3/4 inches in height. This fun paperweight will be at home on any executive's desk or in a collection.
