This charming old owl sits atop a pile of books looking very wise indeed! He is beautifully cast and painted  and is obviously quality - I believe he was perhaps originally one of a pair, or was possibly part of a larger piece, or a garniture. He is in lovely condition, however there are two small filled holes on the surface and underside of the marble-base which are evidence of his former life or a piece that is now missing. I mention it only because I like to give an accurate description of my items - I do not believe it notices or detracts from the look of the piece. Because there is only one, I have described him as a paperweight, although obviously he could be used as a single bookend - and very handsome he looks too. Measures  13cm long across the base, and 13cm to the tip of the owl. For more information or photographs, please get in touch.
