Description: This Mediterranean Owl figurine measures approx 9.75cms (3.8ins) high by 6cms (2.4ins) wide by 5.8cms (2.25ins) deep. It would look perfect displayed either in the home or office. The hand-painted, porcelain-like finish is simply stunning in its detail and is an intricate piece of Spanish ceramic art. Because each one is individually painted, each figurine is distinct and so no single one is exactly the same as another (so figures may differ slightly from the photos here).
