Title Bronze mountain eagle
Nationality Austrian
Period c 1890-1918
Sold

This fine bronze, almost certainly Austrian, is of a mountain eagle such as those found in the Tyrol or the Dolomites. The styling is magnificent, showing the bird about to take off (or having just landed?), and it is mounted on a nicely polished granite base. It is 12 inches (30 cms) high and the wing span is 15.75 inches (40cms).

The patina is the original chocolate brown colour, somewhat lighter on the underside of the wings.

The condition is excellent throughout, with obvious age wear and tear here and there. All I did to clean it was rub it down with WD40 and polish it with a soft cloth.Total weight is about 6 Kilos or 13 pounds.

It got here this morning, presumably delayed by the holidays. It is perfect, indeed better than I was expecting.
