Mid-Century Modern Glass Owl Paperweight/ Decorative Object by Steuben

About

This elegant glass paperweight/decorative object was created by Steuben Glass Works- one of America's premiere glass studios, since its founding in 1903-circa 1960. It offers a highly stylized rendition of a perched owl. Its eyes are depicted as three concentric hemispheres. The first hemisphere is acid-etched providing contrast to the glossy surface of the owl's body. The second hemisphere is fire-polished, and the third and smallest hemisphere, which represent the owl's pupils, are acid etched. While highly stylized, this paperweight retains an austerity and refined modernist form, which make it a winning addition to any home or desk, regardless of the style of decor. Excellent vintage condition. American, circa 1960 Dimensions: 2.25" H x 3.75" W x 3.25" D.
