Here is Vintage Baldelli Pottery Owl Bank for your consideration

Made and sold during the 1960's, these Baldelli banks are both fun to display and have become very collectible.

This owl features lovely shades of what is to my eyes a mottled rose pink shade (dusty rose) with brownish black trim for a nice pop of color.

I just love those starburst eyes.


The bottom or base of the bank has what appears to be the original plastic plug or stopper in it and is signed: Baldelli Italy.
It has the number which I believe is 814 on the bottom.

In addition, there is also an original price tag from the store it was sold in many years ago which was A&S (also known as Abraham and Strauss).

A&S unfortunately went out of business many years ago, but I enjoyed shopping in their Brooklyn, New York store on Hoyt Street during the 1960's.

This bank measures about 6 1/2 inches tall by about 5 inches wide.
All measurements are approximate.

There is a coin slot opening on the back should you want to use this as a bank.

It would make a nice addition to your vintage Baldelli Pottery, or if you collect banks or just love that mid-century decor.
Nice for the owl collector too!

I dry dusted this bank off and did not do any thorough cleaning so as not to disturb the original label on the base.
I will leave any further cleaning up to the new owner.


Condition
The base shows display and age wear.
The A&S label shows some fading.
There is a mottled look to the colors on the owl in areas.
There are some bubble pops and bubble bursts and uneven colors.

There is a small chip on the base or bottom that is about 1/4 inch.

Near the coin slot area, one side, there is an indent which may be a small chip.

The defects found on vintage pottery like color skips, crazing, uneven color, black flecks, white spots where the color did not grab, glaze pops, sand bumps, uneven mold finishes and imperfections from manufacturing are present and noted for accuracy.

Please see all the pictures and pardon the glare from camera flash.
Note different computer monitors can show colors differently.
