“Old Abe” American bald eagle

Five foot tall, bald eagle ‘logo’ garden sculpture in lime/basswood.

“Old Abe” has a legend all to himself dating back to the times of the American civil war. He was adopted in the early 20th Century as the logo for the Case company, who manufactured all sorts of agricultural machinery as well as automobiles. In the logo he stands on a globe, which I have replicated.

I was commissioned to sculpt Abe for a birthday present for a gentleman who has collected more than twenty vintage Case tractors.
