Antique Gilt Riverboat Pilot House Eagle

Antique hand carved wood pilot house eagle with original gilt surface. Masterful carved highly detailed of feathers and of the entire bird. Mounted to the top of the pilot house cabin of a smaller riverboat as you can see the mounting holes in his back. Another master craftsman carved a piece of oak to the back of his head after it was removed from the boat so it looks normal in a sitting bird position. Mounted on a iron museum stand. Circa 1850-1870
