Professor and author Yochai Benkler wrote, “Judges wear legal professionalism and precedent as a mantel that secures legitimacy for their decisions. It’s how they distinguish themselves from politicians or administrative agencies, while wielding power that is sometimes much greater than those democratically accountable actors.” For those powerful officers of the court, we suggest thanking them with our Rosewood Gavel Plaque. A high gloss Rosewood finish covers the plaque. The plaque’s dimensions are 9″ x 12″, so it easily fits on any office wall. The 10” gavel also has a Rosewood finish, and a contrasting gold band circles the head of the gavel. Below the gavel, we have attached a black brass engraving plate. Our design team will engrave up to six lines of text, and the engraving comes free of any charge. This gavel plaque (item # PG4470) makes a marvelous award for any professional magistrate.
