This is a stunning 20th century carving of an eagle with shield. The carved piece depicts the U.S. Navy emblem. There is a large eagle on the top, with widely spread wings and an arched beak. The eagle rests on an American shield, with stars and vertical stripes. Interwoven behind the shield are two anchors with ropes.
This unique piece of American folk art is intricately carved. The entire piece is wooden, with no signs of past paint or coloring. The carved item could have been produced for display on a Navy ship or other similar vessel.
Very good, especially for age and use. Intricately carved, with no severe signs of wear.
Dimensions: 18" H x 17" W x 1 1/2" D.
