Gilt Eagle

Gilt Eagle


Description: Hand carved wood with gesso and gold leaf - metal mounting bracket. We think this excellent eagle is probably Continental and possibly was the top ornament on a wall bed canopy or graced the top of a gilt mrror -- it is definately hand carved and the beak appears to have had a ring or chain going thru it -- also the claws could have had a ring in them -- but whatever it's former use, it is beautiful and has a wonderful patina and looks great everywhere we put it.
Dimensions: 11"""" deep x 21"""" wing spread x 7"""" tall.
Date: Circa 1780.
Condition Report: Condition: good - gilding is worn and darkened with some losses - minor cracks as befits it's age.
Provenance: Continental.
Notes: ID # 8687PW.
