Thank you to Maine Historical Society and Susan Cummings-Lawrence for the information
Note: "The carved eagle served as an ornament for the ark that held the Torah at Anshe Sfard synagogue on Cumberland Avenue in Portland. . . .Animal and bird carvings are typical of Eastern European synagogue ornamentation. Morris Isenman rescued the eagle and other materials after the synagogue closed in the 1950s. " - MHS website
