Mdina owl paperweight
« on: May 19, 2007, 03:40:11 PM »
I've had a pretty nice buying day. Got this Mdina owl -better than pic- thing is I wonder if anyone knows by the label how old it may be. It was in a box full of wooden owls and owl candles!

We went to a fete at a local special school. They had boxes of stuff behind the table and were invited to help unpack. I got the owl which is lovely and a WF ruby jug.

Sorry I already posted this in glass and not paperweights. However is it a weight or a sculpture?

Hiya, I'd put plastic labels into the '90s, and I'd describe it as a sculpture, but only because that makes it not-a-paperweight, and I try not to collect paperweights.
