Rosewood Dragon Table

This Dragon Table is a Piece of History. Originally carved for Grace Slick and Paul Kantner of the Jefferson Airplane this magnificant piece of fine art is as beautiful and solid today as the day it was completed on Dec. 5, 1976 and installed in their living rooom overlooking the Golden Gate.
For years, it was the center piece for practice sessions of the Jefferson Starship. Most of the top rock and roll celebraties of the 70's and 80's played music with Paul and his family seated on or around the Emperor Dragon. If only the Dragon could talk! What stories he could tell, and what music he could play.
