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 the remnants of 2 sections of handrail perpendicular to one another, with 2 bullseye rosettes on the other faces. Rows of 3 carved vertical beads with fluting between run along the main shaft of the piece. A large area has been cut out below the beading toward the bottom of the post. A 2 3/4"(D) x 2 5/8"(W) x 10"(H) piece remains below the corner shared by the handrails. This piece is in good condition with minor wear and some discoloration consistent with the age of the piece.
