Product code: 73597806
Individually hand-made and mouth-blown, this little glass bird is a beautiful treasure to nest in your home. Crafted by hand in the Iittala glass factory in Finland each bird is unique, much like their counterparts in nature.
The Birds by Toikka collection started in 1972, and each year since a new bird has been added to the range, with over four hundred now in the family. Collectors enjoy tracking them down as much as birdwatchers take pleasure in seeking out their real-life companions.
The Tern is a seabird with a buoyant, graceful flight. You can imagine this little fellow hovering delicately above the water before plunging down for his fish supper.

The roots of Iittala date back to 1881 when a glass factory was established in a village of the same name in southern Finland. Today Iittala celebrates generations of essential objects that are made to enrich people’s everyday lives.
Iittala believe objects should be distinctive, combinable and multi-functional, with lasting design that inspires individual use and expression. Iittala objects are designed to be combined, with different designs across series, as well as with existing home environments.
Although their objects look pure and simple in form, making them is far from easy. A vast amount of human skills, knowledge of materials, colors and production methods is required to create an object of ideal quality. They have always pushed the boundaries of what is possible.
Iittala don’t just create beautiful objects. They believe in timeless design that will never be thrown away.More from Iittala
