The Eagle

PRECIOSA Traditional Czech Glass Figures 3

We present another in the series of glass figures produced by PRECIOSA ORNELA in Desná v Jizerských horách in the north of Bohemia which were used as mascots on car radiators.

The Eagle

According to period reports, the figures placed on the car radiators had such a mystical and supernatural effect that the rural populace in particular fell into a panic whenever a vehicle with such an adornment drove past and they endeavoured to hide outside the "field of vision" of the mascots.

This eagle's head and other glass figures from the limited edition are available for sale at our factory shop in Desná.
