This is an antique hand-carved and hand-gilded American eagle, circa late 19th century. A remarkable and striking design, this eagle is depicted with its wings fully spread. The carved feathers show remarkable detail. The eagle’s fierce expression and crossed arrows in its talon serve as a formidable, imposing symbol of our country’s great strength and power.
This is an extremely unique piece of Americana.
In overall fine condition with original painted and gilded surfaces; excellent patina with no breaks or losses to wood.
