Facing opposition at first, the Bald Eagle is today unquestionably the national emblem of the United States of America. Previously decimated throughout the USA, now protected by law, the Bald Eagles still survive in substantial numbers in Canada and Alaska, while migrating to the U.S. The Eagles hunt and fish with deadly skill. Capable of swooping and diving at high speeds, they demonstrate remarkable cunning and courage. Known to mate for life the Eagles are dedicated to their young as excellent parents and defenders of their nest. Courtship involves 'cartwheeling' as a pair to build trust and falcon swoops by the male 'diving pell-mell toward the ground' over and over again to impress his mate.-

THE "RESOLUTE EAGLE" PAPERWEIGHT formerly our "PRESIDENTIAL EAGLE" is a pewter eagle head with genuine 23k gold leaf on beak and eyes set on variegated metal and crystal on a mirror backdrop inside our traditional pewter base. A facsimile of this paperweight was a favorite of a certain U.S. President and could be seen on the "Resolute Desk" while he was in office as "Desk Jewelry by Charles Hill" and as it was coined so it has the potential of arousing "the conscience of the American people." "Charlie Hill did a good job!"
