Any feed back would be great as to what this item is
Marcus, to assist people in assisting you, it would be helpful if you provided a photograph of the entire piece and more information about it such as... What is your item? What are its dimensions? What do you know about it? In what country is it located?
What does the writing say?
I think you are asking if it is medieval, which I doubt, but the info Debora mentioned will be helpful.
As above... A close-up photograph of the carved text would also be helpful.
You can’t zoom in on it
That’s why I’m posting here I have no info on it
It looks like a wonderful wood carving with many great attributes , culminating in a bygone era effect..
... the double headed bird figure may assist in providing clue as to where it may have been made.
this depiction of a warrior from the distant past may also be of some help in arriving at a conclusion.
A good clear in focus photo of the whole item is required, then dimensions and material
From what I can see, which is very little, I would say made in Poland, between 1970 and the time you got it. It has that chunky look and vivid colouring of Polish folk carving.
Another possibility is Spain, with the same time frame. But I am leaning towards Poland.
The double-headed eagle is found throughout Europe, so it could be difficult to find the origin of the eagle crest.
Spain has its fair share of Habsburg double-headed eagles. The Polish eagle has only one head, poor thing.
But we definitely need more photos, and a good size please.
Here is info on how to upload pictures, please remember to click on 'full image' when you post:
Sorry, missed one!!!
And doesn't that eagle head to the left look ADDED???? Also, how big/long is this thing?? WELCOME to ANTIQUERS as well, @Marcuswiley!!
Yes, that 2nd eagle looks hind-sighted. What does that say? Kilnstis God hose?? Czech?
It would be helpful to know what the item is.
Considering there are still kings and queens, we do need a lot more information.
