This is a beautiful hand carved alabaster owl from Italy and one of my favorite pieces. I have always liked owls. The marble is gray, white, and orange. It can be used as a home decor piece or a paperweight as it is heavy enough. The label on the bottom of the owl is in good condition and has the words 'Genuine Alabaster, Hand Carved, Made In Italy' printed on it. The owl measures 3 3/4" tall, about 2 1/2" wide and is 2" diameter at the base.
