Small Red Owl   Small Red Owl   Small Red Owl   

Owls are very collectible and this little red one is unique. 7-1/2" tall x 4" W and 2" deep. There is a small flake of paint missing from the attachment point of the dowel in the back that could easily be filled and touched up if desired, but it doesn't affect stability and isn't visible from the front, so we will leave that decision to the buyer. Circa early-mid 20th century. There is, in fact, a red owl that is native to Madagascar, but we doubt that was the model for this piece, which differs significantly in coloration. Rather, we think this is purely a whimsical carving. (CR-24)
