Mid 19th century gilt cast brass eagle and wood stand, from the personal collection of Belinda Gentle, internationally renowned antiques dealer and an acknowledged expert on antique metalwork. Her husband Rupert, was the author of Domestic Metalwork, the authoritative book on the subject, which she updated and revised after his death.
The Belinda Gentle metalware gallery at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London is named after her. She was a lifetime student and dealer in antique brass and associated metalwork.
This was purchased from her home in 2005 after she died.
The eagle with original gilding, is very realistically cast, with spread wings, turned head, and open claws. It comes with a black painted wood stand, which bears the label underneath from the sale of her effects.
Size 6.75 inches across wings, by about 5 inches high in stand. It weighs 760 grams.
In very good condition, this is a truly lovely piece from the private collection of an international expert on the subject.
