Hoot, There It Is

As if the owl needed any more help looking like a smarty pants, this wise winged figure wears your glasses when you don't have to. Using a single piece of wood, Fair Trade artisans in India hand carve the richly finished owl, making him a charming piece of decor on his own or when rocking your signature specs. A small hook in the back keeps your glasses right where you left them, eliminating the daily blurry-eyed search for your favorite frames. Handmade in India.

Eyeglasses not included.

        I bought this as a gift for someone who always loses her glasses. I also bought one for myself for the same reason. This is an attractive, useful and low cost item. I may buy another one for my sunglasses.

        Comments about OWL EYEGLASS HOLDER:

        I saw this owl eyeglass holder in the catalog and liked it so much that I ordered one as a birthday gift for a friend and one for myself. When I placed the order, the product was on a three week backorder. Once I received them, I could tell that they were hand carved rather than machine made, because they were slightly different from one another in size and appearance. The handmade construction combined with their cute design and functionality are definite positives, unfortunately, the quality of the craftsmanship was not what I expected. On both owls, there were raw areas of wood with no varnish, and wood splinters around the eyes and in some of the creases. It's hard to say whether these flaws had to do with the backorder status; perhaps they were hastily produced due to a greater demand than the supply available at the time. The craftsmanship issues were not enough to cause me to return them, but I did dock two stars because of the subpar quality.

          Comments about OWL EYEGLASS HOLDER:

          This was a great gift idea for my mom. It had an adorable design and a great color to match her furniture. The beak was the perfect size for my glasses, but it would not fit my mother's glasses on it well. My mother's glasses have nose pads that get in the way of the frame from being able to rest on the beak because the nose pads don't allow the frame to lay flush against the eyes. If only the beak was a little bit larger or longer, then it would be perfect and able to hold all glasses.

            My wife keeps her glasses on her nightstand. Every once in a while she accidentally knocks her glasses to the floor when putting a book up for the night or her tablet or phone. I got her this little guy to try to avoid that and it has worked amazingly well over the last month. Not only has she not knocked her glasses off and can reach them easily in the morning, but the little guy gives me a good chuckle in the morning when I see him peering out through those glasses.

            Great product. It's very unique and it looks lovely. The owl holder is great for my husband's thin, wire frames, but I wouldn't be able to put my thick frames on them.

                We're pretty sure that adding this hand-carved Owl Eyeglass Holder to our assortment is a wise decision, but since voting is such a hoot, we figured we'd ask what you think. Does this wooden stand have your vote?
