WWII NAZI GENERAL BADER'S WWI AVIATION STATUE BY CARL WOLLER

This large statue was wrapped up in a horse blanket in one of his Estate trunks. We have never seen this particular Germanic/Austrian statue before, so it may be the only one in existence. Standing one foot high, the white metal statue has a feldgrau patina (has some normal wear spots) and depicts an early Germanic warrior with a "winged" body battle shield. Standing on a rock, the front is inscribed "Wieland der Schmied, Oster Flugtechnischer Verein". Reverse is artist signed "Carl Woller, MCMXVII" (1917). Has a polished brown marble base. Bolt holding the statue is aged, and needs tightening.
