I came across this little chappy yesterday in the same charity shop we found the "Fireglow" china:
He's a little pot made by Avon, so he must've held some kind of lotion or potion at one point. The body is ceramic but the head is plastic. I love him; he's so retro and a 3D personification of all those popular owl illustrations that are around in Paperchase and the like at the moment. Plus, he was the bargain price of £1. Love it.
