JOHN BELLAMY'S EAGLES:
The most famous American nautical wood carver was John Haley Bellamy, who worked out of Kittery, Maine, in the 1860s and 1870s. Bellamy made his living by carving eagles for ships and also for the home. Bellamy's eagles stood out from all other eagles and still do, as the line and design were perfect. They look very realistic.eagles in recent years. His work represents the high end of nautical carvings in terms of value. Many carvers copied his style and some still do.
