This large hand carved marble stone hitching post is measured 55" tall, 9" wide and 9" long. We have two of the same hitching posts in stock; they came in a pair but can be sold separately. Each weighs approx. 280 lbs. This traditional northern Chinese hitching post was used to tie horses for wealthy families. Often erected in a large courtyard, these decorative hitching posts in a pair are usually positioned on opposite side of the courtyard. This magnificent hand carved hitching post is both functional and decorative. On the top of the post, a horseman is seen riding on a mystical creature, symbol of strength. They are also used to dispel evil spirits. Throughout years of buying trips to China, this was the first time we ever ran across hitching posts that were so well executed.
