Curtis Jere Owl


A fabulous cast brass Curtis Jere (C. Jere) owl or owlet sculpture with unusual wire nest. Luminous green-yellow eyes, believe they are resin or lucite. Owl appears to be brass and the wires copper. This one is also interesting because it's mounted on a thick piece of tree bark, as opposed to a wood piling like all the others we've seen. Have not seen another one with the nest or on bark. Would look great in a Curtis Jere collection or on its own in a mid century modern setting. Partially signed on the wing with "c Jere" bottom in black marker, believe there was also likely a date probably 1969 or 1970.

In good vintage condition, with no cracks or chips. The piece of bark is rounded on bottom so the sculpture tends to roll over if placed on an uneven or sloped surface - would recommend some felt pads or something under to stabilize it. Otherwise in great shape.

Measures about 7 1/2" long, 5" widest, 5 1/2" tall including the bark.
