Coming to you from Doc's Crocks is this wonderful Owl Decanter.
It was made by the Brush Pottery (formerly Brush-McCoy until 1925). It was part of their "Wise Birds" Line introduced in 1927. It was advertised as "A New Line of 'Purse-Openers' for Every Store Everywhere." The original ad and the pieces in this line are pictured above (Martha and Steve Sanford, The Guide to Brush-McCoy Pottery, pp. 8, 124-125)
This beauty is a Finely Molded Owl Standing on a Branch and Dressed in Pastel Colors. Inside at the bottom it reads, "Patent Applied For." Used to have a music box inside. Stands 10 3/4" tall.
Excellent Condition. A couple of pinhead-size nibbles at the base, and some surface-only lines inside the base not visible outside. Otherwise as made.
