This was given to me by a friend many years ago.
It's a fantastic piece, about 2 3/4 inches in diameter,
wonderful coarse texture,
a signature, the first part of which didn't fit,....il nome!
Maybe someone recognizes the piece and knows the maker?

Thanks for stopping by,
Tony.

    Designed by Kaarina Aho (1925 - 1990) who worked for Arabia from 1946-1962.
    What a fabulous little find Budek!
    Congratulations!
    Perhaps even her name has echoes of the owl call?

    Goodnight,
    and Thank You again,

    The Finnish have a lot of interesting things they keep around for good luck. I think the owl might be one of them. Very cool, mich

    Hi Tony,
    I own one of this little AHO owl myself.
    This is one (and only one) of the many owls (varies in sizes & styles) that AHO made.
    Mine is 2" tall and I got it around $100 USD, but I say it should worth $50-70.
    The prize will skyrocket among collectors, so I've seen cases where one of them, measured around 5", got to around $200 USD.


    Sincerely,

    Hi Mr. Budek,
    I wonder if you still check your "uncleuncle" email.
    I sent you an email regard to the AHO owl several days ago.

    I am wondering if it is a Vesper not knowing if their is any holes to thr top of it, The only problem. Other than that the ony other thing I can come up with is it a paper weight,
