Although Dictionary.com defines it is as a type of mallet or hammer, a gavel will never strike a ball or nail. Instead, the strike of a gavel gets people’s attention. Any auctioneer, presiding officer of a meeting, or judge can explain just how important a gavel is to their job. Those who wield a gavel are also important, so we offer a great gift idea to honor those vital individuals: our Genuine Walnut Gavel Plaque! With the dimensions of 9” x 12” and weighing three pounds, this plaque has an authentic walnut mounting board with beveled edges. A standard size gavel with a gold band is attached to the walnut plank. Using two brass screws, we have attached a black brass engraving plate, and our graphic arts department will use laser technology to engrave up to five lines of text on the plate. All engraving comes free of charge. Our Genuine Walnut Gavel Plaque (item # AGP-20) is a wonderful way to thank those people who wield the most powerful hammer of them all—a gavel!
