Large, framed, oil on canvas of the American Bald Eagle. In untouched condition, this artifact is a hand-painted patriotic piece of nineteenth century folk art unsigned by the artist. Wooden frame measures 38” high x 29¼” wide and is reinforced on the back with 3” wide pieces of wood blocking all along the edges. Frame is tight and strong and painted in a gold / bronze color that exhibits dulling, light scuffs, dings, and gouges together with light surface grime. Canvas cloth measures 27½” wide x 36½” long and is secured to the frame via the wood blocking. Portrait is free of any cuts, tears or perforations.  Paint does show very slight fine cracking in areas. Artifact came from an auction in the New England area and is in very good untouched original condition.

Centered on the canvas is the hand-painted figure of the American Bald eagle in a side-on view. Eagle measures approximately 27½” high and 12” across at the widest point. The handsome American symbol of freedom, with its white-domed feathered head, large piercing eye, strong, pointed yellow beak, and a full, dark brown / bronze colored feathered body with thick, strong, white talons sits perched on a tree limb and looks to its right. Background color is a light brown hue. Found on the wood blocking at back of frame are two paper tags and other numbers that look to be old inventory or museum numbers. One reads “#142  EAGLE” while the other tag is a 3½” x 2” piece of pasteboard with a typed wording of “#142,  Eagle, American Oil Portrait / w / frame / NW Room,  3rd Floor”. Also, painted in small (1/8” high) red numbers on the back of frame is the numeric “80.000.122”. Blocking also shows traces of old dark-colored backing glued to the wood blocking.
