This uncommon oak landing newel post is sure to make a statement! A rich stained finish compliments the gorgeous grain of the oak, which has subtle quarter-sawn markings in areas. This post has ball finials at the top and bottom of the shaft for use on a landing. The top box of the post has staggered remnants of 2 sections of handrail perpendicular to one another, with 3 bullseye rosettes on the other faces. Rows of 3 carved vertical beads with fluting between run along the main shaft of the piece. Below the beading toward the bottom of the post, a large area has been cut out to fit the post in a right-angled landing. This piece is in good condition with minor wear and some discoloration consistent with the age of the piece.
