Vintage 1975 White Ceramic Owl Umbrella Stand
Sometimes you spot something and you think to yourself 'please let this be what I hope it is' so you take a closer look...and it is!
When I spotted this owl in an antique store, I was hoping it was from the 1970's. Owls are a quintessential '70s motif and finding a quirky owl item that's genuinely from the '70s always thrills me. So I approached this piece with great anticipation, carefully picked it up and turned it over and saw that the maker had marked it with his/her initials and the year 'K. K. '75"!
My next move was to give it a thorough once-over. Looking for cracks, signs of repair or serious damage, and I found nothing! A few tiny dings around the feet at the base of the piece (see last photo), but other than that, it was in great shape.
This is obviously perfect for umbrellas but it would look great with a collection of dried reeds, or even just standing on its own as a great piece of 1970's decor.
The dimensions are: 20.5" high x 12" wide x 9" deep.
