CBI, CUSTOM "BAT" WING SHAPE EXOTICA-MAXIMA FILIGREE PILOT WINGS!
NIGHT FIGHTER CUSTOM MADE! THESE RIVAL ANY TIFFANY’S CREATION! 100% PURE ART WING
Guaranteed original forever. I got these a while back and have been pleased with the ornate craftsmanship. Reputed to have been from a pilot in the 426th NIGHT FIGHTER SQUADRON, and hence their BAT WING type shape.

The artist took many hours to make this, and the detail is striking! First, the item is full size wingspan of 3.25 inches. No defects and I see no reason why it cannot be displayed proudly.

The motif is a pilot's wing with the shield in the center and there are no broken parts, sturdy and sound as the day it was make. The images look somewhat dark, but the wing does have some luster, as the slanted image shows.

This artwork is more like what I would expect from a Tiffany's or such, but we all know there are some great craftsmen in India during that era.

The wings itself is stressed on the joint where the wing on the right in the photo, where it connects to the shield itself is stressed and I do not play with the wings. They are in a small windowed display box for medals and it is where it stays. the wings were fragile in WWII, not thick, so they are delicate and if you break it - it is your responsibility.
