Call off the hunt, because here it is. A 320 kilo monstrosity with weather marks like no other, you'd be wise to step aside when the Grand Dame D.C. strolls in. This red gum antiquity has been around the block a few times. Look at this fellow, it practically wears a crown. A statuesque 3500 mm in height and 1600 mm in width, this grandiose testament to time itself was rescued from the burning pile in Narrandera in Southern, NSW after 130 years asleep in dawn's shadows. Sliced out of obscurity by man made machinery, the natural goodness of this modest monster reveals itself evermore with each and every investigation. Extraordinary fiddleback features scattered around its torso, dark grains and gum veins bracketing the beauty within, The Grand Dame D.C. is a lyrical revelation, devoid of ornate niceties and abundant with impolite truths. It is what it is. Mother Nature's bountiful biscuit; even its rough, natural edges make you think twice. Be first hand witness to its revelatory, home spun vignettes as you give this dame a resting place in your office, foyer, studio or dining room. There is only one of these in existence and due to its rarity, its weight, its oft overlooked base integrity and its ability to listen before it speaks, we've priced it for the kind of buyer who appreciates what others might not. You'II never forget a thing this grand dame tells you in its feathered features. It will stay with you for life and have a ricochet effect upon each and every contemplation. Like it's namesake, D.C., it is a thinker, an augur, averse to defeat and pursuant of both common sense and common courtesy. It is a teller of tales, a keeper of secrets and a loyal co-conspirator en route infamy.
