Definition from Traditional Enterprises, LLC:
किसी फ़र्नीचर के पाये की ऐसी डिज़ाइन जो किसी गेंद या अंडे के चील, गिद्ध, ड्रेगन या शेर के पंजे में पकड़े होने का आभास देती हो। यह मुख्यत: 18वीं शताब्दी के अमेरिकन और इंग्लिश फ़र्नीचर से जुड़ा है, लेकिन इसका उद्गम चीन में मोती, क्रिस्टल बॉल या ज्वेल को ड्रेगन द्वारा पंजे में पकड़े होने के रूप में हुआ था।

Example sentence(s):
