Characterful owl figurine from the Daum Glassworks
For the lovers of the animal world and animalia in general this sweet owl figurine ticks all the boxes. Moulded of pate-de-verre (crystal paste) this owl comes from the glassworks of Daum in Nancy, France – one of France’s best known and best loved glass works. Originally crafting unusual and very bespoke pieces of art glass, by the mid twentieth century the company had moved with the times into more conventional pieces which have now become very collectable.
This wise old owl has generous proportions and fine detail from wings to claws, with his head placed at an inquisitive angle. The face is finely detailed and frosted to create distinction from the main body of the piece. The piece is signed “Daum, France” along the bottom edge of the base – signifying that this is a later piece and will date post 1960s.
