This large pair of metal cast eagles with opposing faces are painted black over red on square bases. These date to the 20th century, probably gate finials or architectural decoration. Provenance: From the Long Branch Plantation in Virginia, designed and built by Robert Carter Burwell, along with the help of a local builder-architect, following the classical principles suggested to him by Benjamin Henry Latrobe, architect of the U.S. Capitol. This plantation is now a museum. The pair is in very good condition, with some black paint losses, & patina from outside use. Dimensions: Each are 21 1/2" h x 50 1/2" wingspan x 28" d, on 12" square bases.
