This is a stunning and very rare Whitefriars LARGE OWL on a Dark Blue background.

This is much sought after as one of the peaks of Whitefriars paperweight designs.

This example was originally sold through the German dealer FARFALLA.

Farfalla is a paperweight dealership based in Munich and run by Peter Pommerenke and Monica Fleming who co-wrote "Paperweights of the World". They acid etch their butterfly symbol and the word Munchen to the base of all weights that they sell as shown in picture 3. 

This OWL was made in 1979 and comes in its original lined box which is in good condition.


This paperweight has no chips,scratches flea bites or dings whatsoever.


This is a large paperweight. It weighs 611g, has a 79 mm diameter and a height of 48mm.


I have listed another fantastic paperweight today so please check my other listing.
