    i've tried and tried to decipher the signature and i can't even tell which way to read it! does anyone recognize the signature or symbol? it's a nice little stoneware owl bank - handmade, i believe. from the 70s probably?

      It looks like something from the Pennsylvania ceramist Dr. Harold Mantz

      this is a wonderful mid-century owl by a well-known potter and art history professor from Ohio. - Dr. Harold Mantz.
