Description: Waiting for your purchase is this interesting sculpture of an owl on a log by RED MILL MFG. Little is known about Red Mill, but I believe it was in New York. Their products were unique in that they made their figures from the crushed shells of pecans and possibly other nuts. Apparently they went out of business and their molds were sold to a Chinese concern. This made the original sculptures highly collectible and sought after. The original sculptures had the name Red Mill incised and also usually had a red and gold foil paper sticker which featured the red mill on it. All the Red Mill products are highly detailed works, and their animal figures are especially desirable.
This owl rests on a log or tree branch. His feathers are individually sculpted, the detail is just amazing. When the figures were unmolded, they were then highlighted in areas and darkened in others, giving them a realistic look. This fellow looks as if he could just swoop down on unsuspecting prey at any second. If you collect either Red Mill or owls, you will want this guy for your very own. This would also make a fine gift for the owl lover on your list.
Measurement: Stands 4 3/4 inches tall. It measures approximately 5 inches long and about 3 inches wide front to back. He is a SOLID sculpture and rather heavy.
Condition:EXCELLENT--no chips or damages---still has original sticker and felt pads on bottom
