This is an artful rendition of an eagle attacking its prey, in this case a white weasel. The eagle is brown and white with sculpted feathers, a black bill and yellow talons. He holds the weasel loosely, possibly because he is straddling a stump and has the prey only in one claw while the other claw is behind the stump and can’t reach it. The artist’s intention must have been to freeze this moment where, so far, no one has been hurt and either side might win. At any rate, it’s a handsome piece with the spread wings of the eagle arching above, and the little drama staged below.

The underside is incised 30773 and stamped in blue under glaze with a large S under a crown with Graefenthal over Germany. This mark was used by Carl Scheidig from 1985-1990 (PM&M). Large piece measures 8” wide x 7” tall; base is 3 1/4” x 2 ½”. Condition is pristine with no scratches, cracks, chips or crazing.
