SUNDAY AFTERNOON, ABOUT 4 HOURS BEFORE THE ELECTRICITY WENT OUT IN NYC, A PACKAGE WAS LEFT AT OUR DOOR. IT WAS A BIRTHDAY GIFT FOR ABER, THE OWL COLLECTOR, WHICH I IMMEDIATELY APPROPIATED.

FOR IT HAPPENED TO BE A KRALIK 8.75" TALL OWL DECANTER IN BRIGHT VASELINE YELLOW WITH RUBY RED WINGS, TIP AND TAIL. NO PONTIL. I ONLY WISH I COULD PLACE IT IN AN ULTRAVIOLET LIGHT BASE!

THE MOUTH OF THE BOTTLE IS BEVELED FOR A STOPPER, WHICH MUST HAVE BEEN MINUTE, TO JUDGE BY THE SIZE OF THE OPENING. ABER FOUND OUT THE HEAD COULD STAND AS A DRINKING GLASS.

THE QUILTED PATTERN IS A KRALIK MARKER.

I PLACED IT WHERE WE COULD LOOK AT IT FOR THE 5 OR 6 DAYLIGHT HOURS WE WERE HAVING. AND I FINALLY TOOK PICTURES TODAY,

IT OCCURS TO ME THAT IF YOU CANNOT BE A HIGH-END COLLECTOR, YOU MIGHT AS WELL BE A FUN WITH GLASS COLLECTOR.

WE HAVE NAMED IT--WHAT ELSE? -- SANDY!

    NYC WILL TAKE QUITE A WHILE TO GO BACK TO NORMAL. FLOODED TUNNELS, NO FOOD IN SUPERMARKETS BECAUSE SUPPLIES CANNOT GET THROUGH, A 1% BUREAUCRATIC MAYOR WHO THREATENS TO TAKE PAY AWAY FROM WORKERS IF THEY DO NOT SHOW UP FOR WORK THOUGH HALF OF THE CITY IS WITHOUT ELECTRICITY OR PASSABLE ROADS.

    BUT . . . THE MUCH MALIGNED USPS IS WORKING, FOR BETTER OR WORSE. AND WE DO GET PACKAGES.

    Never seen another ! now must search high and low for Al's owl!

    He would be wonderful to wake up to. Since his head can sit like a tumbler, what about using him as a tumble up? With a black light base he would be a night light too. He is sunlight. What a fortuitous arrival.

    Hello Alfredo, I wanted to comment on how beautiful this piece is. I also just acquired this same decanter, but mine has what looks to be a matching stopper, but is missing the owl head sadly. I was very interested in knowing if you may know even a rough estimate in this piece's value?

    Thanks,

    Jericho
