A vintage deskweight in the form of a brass eagle swooping on prey mounted upon a circular wooden plinth. The brass eagle is securely attached to the wooden plinth by means of a central screw (see photographs).
The wooden base has a minor dink or two which we have tried to show in the photographs. The underside of the weight probably once had baize attached to it, but this is no longer present. The deskweight has been lightly cleaned only, in order to retain the patina, but might benefit from further cleaning (depending upon the buyer's preference). Otherwise, the deskweight is structurally sound.
The deskweight, in its entirety, stands approximately 7.125in tall, and the wooden base measures just over 3.75in in diameter. Weighs almost 570g. Exact age unknown but probably dates from around the middle of last century.
