   CARVED EAGLE PLAQUE WITH THE BEST COLOR AND GILDED SURFACE, WITH SCROLLWORK-BOUND DATES OF THE REVOLUTIONARY AND CIVIL WARS UNDER THE WORD �LIBERTY�:


 

Description:
This beautiful carved and gilded eagle is fantastic because it�s not the standard fare. Found in a lodge hall on Long Island, its bold form, water-gilded surface and color cause it to dwarf the common Bellamy-style stern board and decorative forms, despite its small size. Made ca 1865-1880, it was most certainly carved by a Civil War veteran. Flanking each side, framed by carved streamers, are dates of both the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, while above is the word �Liberty�. Underneath are crossed flags, resting within a crown-shaped pediment, on which are three stars. The depth of the carving adds greatly to its appeal, as the eagle protrudes a full five inches from the wall.
