Pilot House Eagle
Presented here, a fabulous American "Pilot House" Eagle, dating from the last half of the 19th Century, which, at some time rode the winds while sitting prominently on the pilot house roof of some grand vessel. The rectangular base is a later addition for display as the eagle would have been mounted on the pilothouse of the vessel along the centerline from stem to stern.
Excellent detailed carving and condition. Beautifully patinated surface. A wonderful example of American Folk Art as well as a relatively rare item on the marketplace, this Eagle is also a sign of the times and rightfully deserves a place of honor in any Folk Art Collection. Size is 12-1/2" high with a wingspan of 16 inches.
