The Owl Service

This week we scanned book covers  for The Blackden Trust website, where the Trust is planning to sell books online.  Among the books on sale will be one of our childhood favourites: The Owl Service.

Here's the beautiful dish that inspired the book - the real Owl Service. The decoration round the edge seems to be floral, though some people clearly see owls' eyes staring up at them.

So what happens if you put the "owl" motifs together?

A complete owl, with wings and a body.

More next week,

  1. Are they going to options for signed copies out of interest?

  2. I love the china owl service. I might need to read the book again. It has been a long time.
