A chair that roars

Ran across this in an antique store:

Isn't this fantastic?  I could have made my sons quake when they were growing up if this were mine.  Can you imagine going into your father's den to discuss a transgression and finding him sitting in this chair staring sternly at you?

Have any of you ever seen anything like this?  Do you know anything about it?  My wife thinks it's from a church.  It does look like a gargoyle.

  1. As your son, I know I would have quaked as you sat in it...But, I also know that I would have wanted to inherit it. Beautiful chair. Next project?
