if it is an eagle period preceding the Reich is a good article. but it takes away the charm, not from the time of the Nazis.
I found other examples of eagles on page Wittmann militaria, dating from the 20s and are also in that style and beauty...

Wittmann Militaria #35214C Open-Winged Eagle on Marble Base
Wittmann Militaria #35933AC Large Bronze Eagle by H. Pabst
Great looking Eagle - In Giessen Germany there was a monument that had this eagle on it without Swaz, and the wording"Flieg Deutscher Adler Flieg" Translated reads "Fly German Eagle Fly" - Believe it was built before Germany was allowed to rebuild the Luftwaffe after WWI ,so the early III Reich years. Was in Germany last year and the monument was taken down.

Here's the description for the Adler that started this post
Beautiful Third Reich period time bronzed eagle on marble base. Classic 1930s/40s art. It looks to be made of zinc with a bronze finish. Nice detail. High quality work. No signature.
Width of the wings: 43cm
Height of the base (including in 41cm): 12,5cm.
Nice period time desk decoration in good condition.
It's currently at 220E I think it will go for more personally
When you're wounded and left of Afghanistan's plains,
An' the women come out to cut up what remains,
Jest roll to your rifle an' blow out your brains,
An' go to your Gawd like a soldier." - Rudyard Kipling
