RARE Anchor Hocking Royal Ruby Red Glass Owl Bank RARE

Offered for sale is a very RARE item from the Anchor Hocking Glass Company. This is a Royal Ruby Glass Owl Bank which is marked "Royal Ruby" and "Anchorglass" on the bottom of the piece- these are in raised lettering on the bottom- Royal Ruby in the middle and Anchorglass underneath. T can certainly be no doubt about whether this is "Royal Ruby" or not since it is signed. This owl stands 7 inches tall and on the bottom of the front reads "Be Wise". This bank appeared for the first time in Gene & Cathy Florence's book "Collectible Glassware from the 40's, 50's, 60's" 9th edition this summer and lists for over $300 dollars!!

Please see the other ruby red pieces that I have for ... read more
