    Hi, this is a small 3" eagle sculpture. I'm guessing it's a paperweight. Anyway, there is a signature. Looks like C Russo ? I can't read it well. Looking for any help with this. Thanks so much! bronze1.jpg bronze4.jpg bronze5.jpg bronze6.jpg bronze7.jpg bronze8.jpg bronze10.jpg bronze9.jpg

    Welcome aboard! Almost everyone here knows more than I do, but not everyone checks in every day.

    Kinda just looks like someone in "Foundry Practices 101" class made it and inscribed his/her name in it. Pretty crude.....even for India standards.

    The pictures are awfully dark to see much of anything. Can you lighten them up?

    Thank you - I prefer to have you scratch out "RUDE" and replace it with the words "TRUTHFUL" and "EXPERIENCED" please!

    Well, I won't do that. I don't care how important and knowledgeable you THINK YOU ARE, you don't have to be needlessly insulting and condescending.

    Oh Please.... our good friend @Rayo56 is only sharing his thoughts on the item you have selected to be viewed by members here.

    There is no personal attack.....no judgement on your character , so I for one see no reason for you....to assail his. !!!

    & your metal sculpture .....well it looks to me like a spent fragmented bullet.....

    well, you're an DELETED BY MODERATOR too! If you look at my original question, I didn't ask for any feedback regarding what you thought the quality of the item was. I only asked for help with the signature. If you didn't want to do that, common courtesy dictates you should probably not comment at all. Seems you guys get off on trying to make people feel foolish. How gauche of me to expect kindness and decency, right?

    I tried to tweak two of the pics. I don't know if they cover the entire signature or if they are of any help:

    That's a better job, AJ, the letters look clearer now. I still can't quite see them but t does look to be C. RUS then a C? Last letter M?

    I read GROISGC, which doesn't make sense.
    Yes, that's what I see too.

    I started into Foundry Pattern Making in 1985 then added Foundry Consultant to my title in 1995. Some of the Major Ohio and Pennsylvania Foundries requested my expertise into them getting perfect molds to pour. So yeah I don't consider myself important but obviously some of the Major Foundries do but I do consider myself knowledgeable - figure the time table out - 37 years experience?

    That is the same piece KSW posted, but not the same as OP's.;)
    The signature on the eagle starts with a C or G, so it is not F. Russo.
