    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, nome!
    Maybe someone recognizes the piece and knows the maker?

    Thanks for stopping by,

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

      Have a great week-end,

      Dear V,
      I hear the call of the owl in her name. Thanks for tracking it down, it's great to finally know whooooooooo.
      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.

      Here are some of the bidding histories of AHO owls on Ebay: (sorry I cannot post http links)

      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,
