Vintage Wood Owl Pin w/ Wire Feet
If you thought this Owl’s face was a bit wooden you’d be right – for he's entirely made of bamboo save for his copper wire feet and pin bar. The pin was hand carved and hand painted in Taiwan, most likely in the 1960’s or 70’s in an imitation of Takahashi, and measures 1.5” in length and 5/8” in width, with a roll clasp on the back that has been glued on (original). It is in good vintage condition with just a touch of paint wear to the ear tips and is marked “Made in Taiwan” on the back. Lightweight and lovely with hues that will work all year ‘round.
