FinnFest 2016 takes place on a cruise sailing from Boston to Montreal, and the iittala Toikka Dotterel honors the event's voyage. The English word "Dotterel" dates back to 1440 as an insult to someone considered foolish or easily duped. It's unsure which usage came first, but the Dotterel bird shares this name due to its unsuspecting nature which makes it easily caught. The raised detailing of the mouth-blown glass gives the plumage a texture that can be admired from afar and felt in hand, but the wings are left smooth circles. A blue head and translucent beak sit slightly cocked on the plump body, capturing the bird's tame and trusting disposition.The birds of Oiva Toikka's 2016 collection are individually mouth-blown by the master glassblowers at iittala's glassworks in Finland. Each handcrafted iittala Toikka Small Dotterel - FinnFest 2016 Bird carries the signature O. Toikka IITTALA FinnFest 2016 on its base to ensure authenticity.

The detailing is top-notch
This bird is beautiful in the stock photos, but it was made for close-ups. The colors play nicely off of one another, and the overall effect is of one joyful bird.

Beautiful bird - great experience
Another beautiful bird by Toikka and I, again, had a great online ordering and fast delivery experience.

Beautiful!
I already have one so buying this as a going away gift for a friend who also love the Toikka birds. The two are slightly different because of hand made nature but both are stunning!
