Great combinations: steak and fries... love and marriage... diamonds and pearls... Bars and Owls!
Honestly, some of my owls, especially the figural ones, just enchant me, you know? Thinking of all the things they have "seen" (history, heritage, horrors, maybe even decades in dark boxes or cabine...
I just ran across this! Great expression. YES, more details, please... ceramic? What is the indentation/aperture on the base? Glass eyes? I would love to learn more about this bird. "Jairus" is...
Thanks for the lore and lesson and lovely owl image. Just enchanting, and then some. I keep managing to RESIST getting pulled into owl jewelry, but... you aren't helping! :)
Aha... Austin. Well, I'm a native (displaced) Houstonian. How's THAT for a hoot, baby?!
Wow! Mesmerizing... Thank you for sharing!
He's adorable, first and foremost... I used to have some knowledge on the basics of old teddies, but nothing's ringing a definite bell. The shape and overall look say 'American, 1930-ish' to me'. ...
Absolutely precious. I'd love to touch and appreciate all the wonderful folds and stitches while daydreaming about its history... Thank you for a beguiling fantasy.
ENCHANTING!!!!! Thanks for posting!
Well, I'm Mexican, so my owls and I drink Don Julio (when you're buying). Salud...
Oh, I am THERE! Cheers x 3!
Browsing through these old posts is sooooooooooooo worth it. WOW. This piece has it all. Little dove, wherever you are, I'm dreaming of you tonight.
Now that is just plain HANDSOME.
OMG, that bill is mine! I left it on a countertop at Woolworth's! But seriously, this opener is oddly pleasing as a match with the little brown cast iron birdy opener I just posted, isn't it?
Thanks, dahlings! Yes, I did touch a magnet to it and it is definitely attracted. It's really quite functional... fits the palm nicely, etc., but gee, why make it so heavy?? The weight makes it a l...
Thanks, racer! This style of spoon can apparently be traced back to mint julep origins in eighteenth century America (maybe beyond)... other later historical descriptors spring up here and there. ...
Nine years ago? Yipes. Well, I don't know about the history or details of the crazing, etc., but the bill details and inner groove are very sweet and the head is really pleasing. Warren, if you'r...
Spectacular. I am in love. Where has he been all my life? Or at least for the past four years?
66 cm?????????? Gigantic!!!!!!!!!!! That bird is an absolute spectacle. If she were mine, I'd have to name her Fanny Brice, and just give her her own room. I know, I know, I'm gushing, but, go...
Thanks, friends... It really feels special.
Ooooooooooooooooh! May I get one with an OWL, please????????? lol Very sexy.
Hey! The "Blue Parrot" was the 'other bar', rival to Rick's "Cafe Americain" in the movie "Casablanca". I knew there was something about this bird that was rumbling around in the back of my brain...
What precious little curiosities... Thank you!
Well, hello there... blast from the past... I just ran across your lovely flock. HellooooooOOOOOooooOoOOO!!!!
Thank you. With the package in tow, at least you'll never have to wonder if you have the correct original number! Again, a beautiful little set...
Beautiful piece, and so much information and research. I wonder if I might ask... some "sake sets" have four cups... some six... I have even heard of eight. I have a little Lusterware owl set (t...
I have a 35-year-old pet parrot, and he has a number of buddies who are cockatoos. This really captures the head-bobbing, boisterous, crest-stretching moves they make, it really does!
I'll agree with the mesquite diagnosis, and I love it!
As a relative newb to glass, I knew that "carnival glass' referred to a range of makers and eras, and i was curious to knw more. For others who may be interested, this was a helpful museum seminar on...
Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get ya!
Ain't it the truth, bb2?? I suffer from a persistent delusion that my some inanimate objects have feelings. Like my owls. I have to treat them right. Oh, and the eyes follow me, too...
I'm no expert on Germany marks, but I did find this... some interesting reading... https://www.porcelainmarksandmore.com/resources/history-notes.php
Wow! So... alive. You're right, Newfld... he's got some serious attitude.
I have a couple of cute little toothpick holders in the old HappyHourOwls cabinet... I actually use one for wooden matches and then one for toothpicks. This cute little guy makes me think about de...
Oh, my, my, my... *I* give a hoot... no, wait, TWO hoots about this wonderful item. Happy belated 1929...
My sincere thanks, Katherine... you touched my heart.
Thank you! From the bottom of my heart... thank you so very, very much.
Thank you! I enjoyed Googling some more, based on that. You sound like a fascinating collector. Great to "meet" you!
Looks Native-inspired... pale slip and earth/rock tones... Beautiful.
Kismet. I hope you and The Angry One are still together...
Great story... doesn't get much better. Well done!
Now THIS is a Happy Hour Owl! Love it.
What a great example of Zuni pale slip and subtle crushed rock colors. The pose and expression --- wonderfully alive. Thanks! I really covet a Zuni owl. Someday... :)
This is just beautiful... very powerful lines. I had some good fun looking for something like it... https://www.bing.com/images/search?q=la%20riojana%20owl%20pitcher&qs=n&form=QBIRMH&sp=-1&pq=la%20...
Thrift store --- sort of a reverse once-and-future archeology!
Well, the mind sees what it craves, yes? To wit... I saw an OWL in this fabulous piece, and clicked on it instantly!! Still, it's a beauty. Thanks for the photos, and it didn't hurt me one bit to...
Well, poo. I still can't enhance the label resolution to the point of any readability, so I guess I'll leave my darling as... still a mystery... Thanks, everybody!
I have followed examples, original and reproduction, for years. I just haven't had the resolve or confidence to get one. The vagaries of repro vs. original, knock-offs, condition, etc., etc. have ...
I completely share your love of MCM as a mainstay, yet I, too, am drawn to the occasional (frequent!) whimsical expression from other times. I showed my little neighbor boy, who loves my collection,...
What a beauty. I had a quick look around the 'net and saw some of the color variations but that amberina is just stunning. My happy hour owls could really use a little pitcher like that. I'm now o...
