ID help Owl and Pussycat jugs
« on: January 28, 2007, 10:09:08 AM »
Trying to sort things out here at present and wondered if anyone can help me ID these pressed glass jugs. I've had them over 20 years and I'm pretty sure they are pre-war. They stand 8.5 inches high, but I've no idea at all where they may originate from so all help appreciated.

Paul - these remind me of an eBay auction Max posted about - my brain's a little embroille  ;) today so I can't remember what the thread was called but it was a big glass owl thingummy like yours.  Hopefully Max will be around to point you in the right direction (where is she btw????)

Yep that's the one Della (super sleuth) - is it nothing like Paul's jug though?  Oh well ... I knew it was an owl at least!  Sue, I'll email Max and see if she's OK - she's probably doing something arty and interesting  ;)

Yep!  Inundated with art stuff to do (sorry for using your thread Paul).  Just spent a week in Paris and don't know where to start on everything...making headway though!  :D

Hopefully after a few solid days on it, I'll be back in the world of the living!   :P

What do we think for selling them individually to appeal to owl and cat collectors or keep them togther? They've got to go as I'm trying to work out what I'm going to take to Crete.

Sorry about the little diversion Paul.  Personally, if I were selling them I'd split them up and sell separately making sure I listed them in a category to highlight the owl/cat theme as well as in date-lined glass.

Yes sell them seperately on the same day and cross reference to each other
