PostSubject: Westland Giftware eagles   Fri Sep 25, 2015 5:25 am

Westland Giftware is a company that makes decorative figurines.  You may have heard of their Horse of a Different Color and Call of the Wolf lines.  Because their eagle figures are so detailed and posed dramatically, they are my favorite eagles to collect.  When I got started collecting eagle figures back in 2005, they were fairly common.  However, Westland stopped producing wildlife figures so they are rather hard to find now.  Sometimes they pop on on Ebay or I luck out while browsing in a gift shop somewhere.
I apologize for the poor lighting in my photos

One of the first Westland figures I got.  I remember getting it back in 2005.

This is one of their smaller figures but still very well sculpted with lots of detail

This candle holder seems poorly designed.  The eagle's wing is situated almost directly above the candle.  But it's a great figure if you don't light the candle.

This one is also a music box

Those are cool. Don't show them to my husband though. I have nowhere to put it, and I think they're too breakable for my kiddos.

Haha, yeah. They are pretty fragile, especially their wing feathers
