"NUREMBERG" EAGLE AN IMPRESSIVE SMALL VERSION OF KURT SCHMIDT-EHMEN'S FAMOUS EAGLE FROM THE REICH PARTY DAY GROUNDS IN NUREMBERG
This is an original example of a Third Reich Nazi eagle table decoration in a somewhat less frequently encountered pattern, having a smooth, un-sculpted reverse.
There were a variety of Hoheitsadler (official NSDAP term for the Nazi eagle) that where mounted on every official building or place of significance for the Nazi Party.
The table decoration that is offered here is a very detailed silver finished copy of the huge eagle at the Luitpoldarena on the Nuremberg Reich Party Day Grounds by sculptor Kurt Schmid-Ehmen, one of the most talented sculptors in Nazi Germany.
The eagle is 18cm tall including the stone base, it has a wingspan of 15cm
The eagle is mounted on a low-base made of white/grey coloured marble, adorned on the front with a beautifully hand-engraved plaque bearing the inscription: "Farewell, December 1937, from the members of Dept. 3, Holzminden" (South Saxony).
Rare to find a dedicated sculpture such as this!
