More about iittala Toikka Coral Eider - 2011 Annual BirdShowcasing the talents of master glass-blower Oiva Toikka, the 2011 Coral Eider Annual bird has Toikka?s talents written all over it. By using a new shade of blue and a unique detailing technique, this Eider is a rare beauty. Made from translucent teal glass, the Eider's mouth-blown body is completely transparent which gives the bird its glowing blue hue; when placed near the sunlight the glittering tones become even more radiant. Slightly darker in color, the bird's head is made from solid glass to give its proud crown a moment of attention. Most importantly, the bird features bright orange markings that run in curved vertical lines along the Eider?s body. A refreshing combination of clear form and piercing color, the Coral Eider is a collectible that will be passed along for generations. Collect just the bird or pair it with its matching 2011 Annual Coral Eider Egg to complete this year?s set.The 2011 collection of birds by Oiva Toikka are individually mouth-blown by the master glassblowers at iittala?s glassworks in Nuutaj?rvi, Finland.
