    I think I would discount Polish due to the lack of the crowned head.

    Other than that though, no idea sorry!

    Cheers, Ade.

    This doesnt help much but i reckon they look more like griffin than eagles? If they are they could be really old.

    Hi Raymond, no, I don't think they are Polish due to the uncrowned head. The Poles used an uncrowned eagle in the post war communist years only and these look older than post 1945.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Possibly 19th Century "Fire insurance" wall plaques.
    Fixed to a wall of a building to show that the building has fire insurance.

    Fire Insurance Wall Plaques
