This is a vase and just several inches high. Vase or drinking cup, it’s still pretty fab. All of the owl kitsch in this posting was either $1.00-$2.00. Deals are always being worked at Wellfleet. I purchased all of this stuff from a guy that keeps a tour bus CRAMMED with stuff. The owls must have been an estate sale booty and I just rummaged through the box, asked for a price and that was that.

These are made of a sturdy plastic. The head gives the appearance that they swivel but they don’t.

I have no idea what this is supposed to be. I think it may have had some more shells glued to it therefore leading me to believe that this was probably a tourism souvenir. I can’t figure out what the hell the owl is made of!

This is a wood sculpture and stands just a few inches high. It’s very lightweight.

These are my favorite pieces from this purchase. I started out only buying these 2 napkin holders but ended up buying a bunch of owl kitsch.

    My favorites are in photos two and three. I love the squenched necks on the duo in 2 and the big bulging red eyes. But the real winner to me is the sad little shell one. Is the owl made out of shells or is that carved wood? And is the little shell on the black dowel supposed to be a sink or a drinking fountain or an outdoor fountain? Maybe a bird bath? A craft project that thankfully steered off course? Which makes me love it even more. This is an excellent start to a budding owl, the national bird of kitsch, collection.

    I like your owls! I think I have a trivet that matches the napkin holders, but I might have flipped it. Maybe the shell one is a bird feeder or ashtray?
