At the turn of the nineteenth century, the shop of master potter, Rudolph Christ, began making press-molded bottles. The bottles came in many forms including owls and chickens. The owl bottles were probably made in imitation of similar bottles made in Staffordshire, England. Similar press-molded bottles were made in Salem throughout the nineteenth century by Christ’s successors as well. Our noble Owl with brown glaze measures approximately 6″ high x 2.5″ wide. Created using only lead-free glaze. Your owl will arrive with a “Handcrafted Salem 1766” tag and packed in a kraft gift box.
