I thought I had a large collection of owls…..

until I happened upon a yard sale last Saturday.

There, I found an enormous collection of owls.

I didn’t ask, but from what I gathered from the

conversations, the owner had died and these

were among her belongings that were being sold.

I think I would have liked to have met this lady…

we most likely would have had a lot in common.

I knew I didn’t need any more owls.

Besides, I didn’t know where I would display them,

as I have so many collections already.


there were some that I couldn’t resist buying.

I’ve posted them below.

First of all, I just love this very large white owl.

It is very heavy….20 lbs., and 18” tall.

I can’t figure out what it is made of…..

my daughters say it could be ivory.

Do any of you have any idea?

This is a very unusual carving.
There is an owl inside of each owl.
The material looks like jade.

This is a nice large brass owl.

This owl is also made of brass…
but attached to a base.

This is a set of two small white owls.

This is a set of five really small owls…
carved out of wood.
I think they are cute.

This is a nice plaque by
Coppercraft Guild.
I remember hosting a
Coppercraft party years ago.
I have several items,
including The Last Supper.

This is a set of four coffee mugs.

This is a set if six glasses.

This is one of my favorites that I
overlooked when taking the photos.
It has carved out looking holes
in the front and sides.
There is a hole in the back so that
a candle can be placed inside.
It is 10” high and 7” wide.

Now, I have to find a place to display them.

What I want is a curio cabinet to place

all of my owls in.

That is a collection by itself.
I really like that white owl. Let us know if you find out what it's made of.

Lots of owls! I like the white one and the brass one and the coppercraft, too.

I have a similar owl to this white one and it is made of alabester - if this helps.
