Description

From the 1700’s, this hand carved Italian eagle is holding a cartouche with his right foot while his left foot clutches the platform beneath him. We believe this platform would have been placed into another element as there is a hole going all the way through for a peg to go into that element. The elements on the back of the eagle are in the shape of a small book holder or candlestick stand.

This beautifully hand carved Italian Eagle can be placed on any surface as an accessory.

CONDITION: Good strong antique condition with distressed finish as seen in photos (chips, losses). Some areas with loss of gilt have been touched up.
