I will be listing some nice Antique and Vintage Items this week. Here is a Wonderful and Scarce ANTIQUE 19THC CAST ZINC EAGLE CLUTCHING ARROWS AND UNION SHIELD. It is 39-3/4 wide. Has nice old paint surface as found in a North Shore Massachusetts estate. A nice old coat of dark reddish brown paint with remnants of old blue and white on the shield and on the background with white eagle’s eye. I thought it was an old carved wood eagle because of the color when I first saw it, but it appears to be made of zinc. The rear side has an early olive green paint with some of the same olive green and perhaps a gold color showing underneath the brown paint in the chipped areas on the front. This is a genuine antique eagle and not one of those later vintage 20thC eagles. Eagle is in good condition with no damage. Still has it’s original old metal eyelets for hanging on the back. There is still quite a bit of dirt in the crevices and surface. I probably should have cleaned it to improve the appearance, but you are getting it just as it was found in estate. Mine offered here at a reasonable starting price, the lowest price I will be offering it for. Eagle weighs approximately 15.25 lbs. Look for my other nice Antique Items I will be listing as well.
