Folk Carved and Painted Eagle

$3,675.00 USD

This proud bird was carved from a single, softwood, log and stands 31 1/4" tall.

The form is a bald eagle atop a rocky perch.  The folk carving is well done of a muscular eagle standing on slender legs and talons.  The paint decoration is especially nice with feathery texturing work throughout but exceptional on the neck and head.

Condition is good with a tight age split from the base to neck on the right side.  This is not uncommon for carvings of this size.  There is also a small chip out of the base.  Surface condition is otherwise excellent.

The work is unsigned but has the number H918 in ink on the underside which may be a museum inventory number.

An estimated $75 is included in the price to cover packing, shipping and insurance.
