This is a realistically modeled antique 900 silver brooch depicting an eagle with extended wings and talons ready to grip. The brooch is marked 900 for silver content and a maker's mark that looks like ATC. The back of the brooch has a simple pin stem and C clasp closure. This sturdy brooch appears handcrafted.
The brooch weighs 24.9 gr. It measures 2" beak to tail and 3" talon to top wing tip.
Condition is overall good with expected patina of age. I note a scratch on the top wingtip.
This eagle is sculpted quite three dimensionally. It's an excellent jewel for a bird lover, or as a symbol of patriotism.
