A stunning antique Victorian owl . Possibly a pen holder although I have heard it may also be a wax jack or even part of a Christmas tree light set.
It is made of silver coloured metal with glass eyes and an amethyst coloured glass back to add a real splash of colour. This cute owl is sitting on a tree branch part of which has a space to put your pen in. This is an antique piece from the later Victorian era or the very early 1900s.
It measures about 2 1/2 inches wide across the base and up to 2 inches or 5 cms high. I think originally this was attached to something, possibly a branch over the top
