      That's such a mystical looking little owl, I adore all the colours he's got. The jewel in his body makes him seem like hes some kind of oracle? Like the kind of familiar Merlin would have?! I see him sitting on the branch of a tree in some ancient wood while a wizard or wise woman stirs a cauldron below :P

      The center just draws your eye in and makes the piece! Cute Florenza!

      Thanks clockerman for the wonderful praise, I'm truly glad you enjoy my posts and I in turn love sharing here on CW and hearing from kind people like yourself

      Karen thanks for the super compliment & yes, this owl hits all those important marks! I think it has an ornate elegance that was a hallmark of Florenza, they made such intricate pieces

      Exactly Lauren, this is a very mystical magical looking owl, that is certainly like an oracle on its tummy & it would look good with Merlin or even Harry Potter lol! Thank you always for the great creative comment & putting the perfect scenario with this owl, I love it

      Thanks a bunch six-0-one for your fabulous compliments, all those factors go together to make this a favorite vintage owl. It always amazes me how owls are so differently portrayed by the various jewelry makers, from cute to fancy you rarely see a poor design, & people really love them

      Thank you MrsT for the lovely praise, yes that mesmerizing central cab just draws your eye to it, there is a bewitching quality about it like you are looking into a crystal ball, you know?

      Special thanks to you Hoot my owl loving friend, I am so glad you got to see this owl and have found several vintage glass ones I will post in a couple wks stay tuned! That is really kind to say you would double love this, thank you so much :)

      What a lovely owl brooch! I love the belly. It looks like a creak is floating by some threes if you look deeply into the cabochon :)

      Thanks Elisabeth for your wonderful compliments & thoughtful love, I am very grateful & happy you liked this owl. You are right, that unusual cab does have a rather scenic look of water & trees, it is the most eye catching part of this owl and gets alot of "ooh" comments when I wear it!
