The "logo" is lightly stamped with a die, which does not even come close to Ludlow's known mark. They produced U.S. aviation wings & other insignia during WWII. The placement and fouling of the anchor rope appears to have been done by someone under the influence. The characteristics of the piece, i.e., the globe, L&L lines and the anchor itself, speak for themselves. Coloring is nice and the bird not bad. Continents appears to be a thin separately applied piece. Enough to fool a novice at the right price. This particular bird is going back to its nest so it may be flying elsewhere. Pass the word!
