For your consideration is this Mid-Century Modern Hand Spun Souvenir Glass Owl on Tree Sculpture. Hand spun glass is an art that takes years or practice and amazing talent. This hand blown and hand spun glass owl sculpture is a large piece, the larger the piece the more talent and craftsmanship one must possess to create these amazing works of art. The glass is heated up to a melting point, and then the "strings" of glass are painstakingly laced and spun to make the piece, the amber colored wings, eyes, tail, etc were applied as the finishing touch. This most likely was purchased at a carnival, fair or amusement park in the 1960's, where they would create the piece in front of the buyer after the buyer choice the colors and design they desired. I recall going to Great America Six Flags when I was a child and begging my Dad to buy me one, he finally gave in, although he refused the large one such as this and I was gifted with a tiny but beautiful one measuring about 1-1/2" tall. This large sculpture measures 7" tall, 3" wide and approximately 8-1/2" around the widest point. This mid century modern creation is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or damage. Enjoy!
