    Default Political Wall Eagle - Arno Breker - Repro

    Picked this up recently. Given the price of original political and railway eagles these day I figured it would still display well.

    Very well made, solid brass and heavy but clearly a repro especially when you look at the reverse as far as I can tell

    Not sure what the correct terminology for these as I've seen them called many things (1st Pattern, NSDAP, Political, Reichstag, etc. )

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    I would call this Reichstag pattern. A very cool piece which would fit well in my collection as well.
    I have to agree with your opinion. There is no way this was made by Arno Breker. I went to an exposition last month with some pieces made by the man. A great artist for sure.

    Thanks!!!

    We see the railway eagles often (as well as often copied) but rarely this pattern which is nice. Furthermore at 19 inches (48 cm) it's a nice compact size making it easier to display.

    The correct terminology is Kroll Opera House Style Wall Eagle.

    That is a pretty bird. Those wide spans of equal sized golden feathers always remind me of the Ancient Egyptian representations of the eagle.

    Thanks Kurt. Yes. I failed to mention Opera House. The seller referred to it as this as well.

    Thanks Adrian. Now that you mention it, it does have an Egyptian vibe to it
