Oiva Toikka Art Glass Bird Nuutajarvi Notsjo Pre Iittala :
You are offerding on the bird shown in the pictures. It is 2.25" high to the top of his head and 4" from beak to tail. It is signed to the base as per picture four and reads O Toikka Nuutajarvi Notsjo, I am not an expert on this designer or factory but understand that Nuutajarvi merged with Iittala in 1988 and glass was sold under the Iittala name after that date. Therefore I would date this bird to pre 1988 but if I've got that wrong please let me know.
It is in good condition with no chips or cracks, however as picture three shows there is a pontil mark to the beak. As picture four shows there is a 7mm hole in the base and over the years dust has got inside the bird. I have washed it out and cleaned it as best I can with a small paintbrush but to get it completely clean it needs a small bottle brush ( which I don't have).
I am selling another of these as well as many other interesting items and will happily amalgamate to save on postage. Happy offerding and please contact me should you require any further pics or info.
POSTAGE IS CHARGED AT COST, I DON'T CHARGE FOR PACKING MATERIALS OR MY TIME .
