    Civil War Eagle Finial "Found Upon the Field of Battle at Gettysburg" Mounted On Colorful Folk Art Plaque and Presented to the New York G.A.R. in Memory of Duryee's Zouaves. This magnificent tableau features a brass eagle finial mounted to a 16" x 10" ledger board cover. The eagle, lacking legs, is mounted to the board via wire and is surrounded by skillfully painted rays emanating from above, crossed U.S. flags and an oak leaf wreath. Painted on a ribbon banner beneath the scene is the caption: "Presented to New York G.A.R. In memory of Duryee's Zouaves 165th Regt. Of Inf. By Mrs. L. R. Sullivan May 7, 1895 New York / Eagle standard finial found upon the field of battle at Gettysburg Pa. By Dr. R. Sullivan June 14, 1882". Of note, in the lower right corner is a stamped G.A.R. medal and the number "63". This is a wonderful and appealing display which would honor any collection.
