    You need to show the back and give the dimensions of the eagle. Is it Bronze? Cast Iron? What?

    I have seen them described both as door knockers and desk ornaments.

    They have certainly been copied over the years.

    Cheers, Ade.

    There are copies out there I have seen them but they are resign and dont have the hinges on the back like mine has, this one im confident is an original.
    Still beleve they where attached on buildings or transportation, the back makes no sence as a decorative desk item or door knocker.

    Found this one online, its just like mine and described as:

    An early NSDAP party eagle in cast iron. This eagle is heavy for it's size, a bit rusty and weathered but otherwise fine. Possibly used as a paperweight or podium emblem.

    There is often a stand found with these which yours is missing to enable it to be stood upright on a desk.

    See this thread for another:
