EVST Daily Dose: 6.24.08

Great kitschy vintage metal owl candle holder from DandelionGirl has the grooviest, googliest orange marble like eyes!

This adorable owl will hold a small pillar candle or tea light near its base. It would probably appreciate just being a decorative owl about the house to keep you company. In its prior life, as it served its enthusiastic candle burning owner, its little orange eyes got the brunt of it and the backs of those eyes melted a bit. From the front, he looks fine, if just a little lop-sided.

Scalloped edge candle holder measures about 2 inches in diameter. About 4.5 inches at its widest and 7.25 inches at its tallest. Gold tone paint on black metal has faded giving it a nice patina. Orange eyes are scuffed and the backs of them each have a crater (see photo). Sticker on the bottom indicates it was made in Hong Kong. Looking for a good, owl loving home and would love to spend its golden years happily holding your paper clips or small supplies.
