    Because when you rub it a genii comes out and grants you three wishes. I'd go a head and lend her the money if I were you. She'll be good for it after her first wish for 89 trillion dollars.

    The seller doesn't even know what it's made out of, and doesn't seem to understand the English language very well.

    I'd give him $50 for it. $100 tops.

    Not that it isn't an awesome owl lamp, but he seems to be under the impression that, because there isn't an exact duplicate of an owl lamp like it, that he's going to be able to sell it for nearly 100k.

    I wouldn't take it for free. You'd have to pay me 89K to own it.

    It must be a typo. Clearly, it's not worth more than $8,900.

    Well, if it sits-passively-on-the-end-table like a duck,
    and lights-up-bright-and-stable like a duck...

    If you don't have the funds for the owl, you can still get a Dust Bunny for a reasonable price - just $14.99 plus $3.95 S&H!

    That would go perfect on my shelf next to my dead moth collection!

    By the way, I'm willing to part with one of my moths for $236.43. It's very cool! Incredibly, it's shaped almost exactly like a live moth!

    I have sold a LOT of antiques on-line and at auction, and I wouldn't give $89 for that crappy-looking lamp. It must be a typo of some kind.

    I'm in the wrong business. Who knew the easiest way to riches was to make Owl lamps?

    The owl in the OP is just a plain electric lamp, doesn't appear to be old either, based on those lights in it's body. I'd be surprised it if was more than 30 years old. Maybe someone's pottery assignment in class.
