Your owl is one in a series of animal figures designed by Benny Motzfeldt in the early 1960’s, when she was employed at Hadeland. The series include a ducks, a kingfisher, a penguin, a seal, a rabbit and others. The series’ popularity was established immediately, since then US vice president Lyndon Johnson visited Norway with his wife, who was knowns as Lady Bird, and she fell in love with the kingfisher figure. Johnson ordered 150 kingfisher figures as gifts, and the whole series became a success, domestically and abroad. It was produced well into the 80’s. The label on your owl was introduced in 1970, so that should narrow it down a bit.
