Owl Eyeglasses Holder

This night owl stays perched beside your bed and keeps your glasses in reach when it's time to turn in.

$24.00

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 sheesham 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.

This little owl is great. Wife loves it and it has a sturdy feel to it... Not too heavy, not too light. My one worry was the description said there was a small hook on the back, but it is actually a good sized slot (see pictures). The bows of the glasses sit in there perfectly and prevent them from unfolding and falling off. Couldn't be happier with the purchase.

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.

This was such a cute and practical gift. My dad frequently misplaces his reading glasses, but now he always knows where to find them! Construction of this piece is solid, and it's a good size.
