Otter (Elbow Rest),Knight’s seat, (st. Giles Cathedral).
Taken from the beautiful and ornate carvings that adorn the harm and elbow rests of the Knights seats found within the Thistle Chapel of St. Giles Cathedral of Edinburgh. The Thistle Chapel was completed in 1911 and the carvings took two brothers just over two years to complete. This magnificent piece is a highly detailed and accurate portrait of an Otter eating one of a pair of freshly caught fish. This is a true piece of master craftsmanship and skill. This replica has been taken directly from the original, which captures the rich and fine detail applied and found upon the original carving. Designed to be free standing it comes with a green felted base to sit upon a shelf or table. This most impressive reproduction artefact makes a most magnificent focal point when on display. Comes with a product label.
