    Default Porcelain desk eagle for consideration

    A friend bought this 20 years ago in austria,i cant make out the base mark even with a magnifying glass it has a crown above a shield that has two lines/figures in it and writing below all in fuzzy blue,doesnt look real to me,he said the shop had tin german half tracks in it,i told him he should have bought them,my appologies if this type of figure has been covered before but my search didnt turn a similar one up.

    Hi, not being my field but i still dont like, for a few reasons.
    But the main one is, in my opinion the eagle seems to have a pidgeon head.
    I would doubt an officer would like to have a pidgeon head eagle on its desk.
    Lacks detail and is probably a piece made for turists.
    Its my opinion.
    Cheers

    Have to agree with Nuno relative to the detail "Not Good" - supposed to reflect the Nurenberg stadium eagle but really lacks the detail.

    Although I know nothing of the finer points of Third Reich porcelain I am also of the same opinion of Nuno.

    The overall quality seems to be lacking, The base doesn't look even, it looks like it might rock if sat on a flat surface. The eagle doesn't look like a proud TR bird and the right wing appears bigger then the left as we look at it. The very misshapen swastika also puts me off and as mentioned, the eagle's head just doesn't look like an eagle.

    All of the above.
    Especially the Swastika seems cramped and crammed in too little a space with not enough 'air' around it.
    Trying hard to look like Allach, but might not be.
    I wont say a definite no to it though, as it isnt my field either.
