This carving of the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter "Eagle" was the first major ship model made by David Warther II. Created of Walnut, Ivory, Ebony, and Abalone Pearl, it was completed at age 17.
Built in 1936 in Germany, she was used as a training ship by the German Navy until 1945. She was taken as a war reparation and has been in service since as a training ship for the U.S. Coast Guard. The "Eagle" is stationed at the Coast Guard Academy in New London, Connecticut.
