Mouth-blown without the use of a mold in Finland, every Muurla Tilhi Clear / White Glass Bird is a unique piece of handcrafted art. Still, each one-of-a-kind creation will share a beautiful black head and clear body with a snowstorm of detail. The senior glassblowers have more than 30 years experience and each add their own personal touch to their birds using glass that's been melted in 1100 C (2012 F) heat. Because lead-free sand from Finnish nature is used in the production, you'll bring a piece of Finland home when you purchase a Muurla bird. Add the Tilhi to your Finnish flock of birds or gift it to a friend who appreciates beautiful craftsmanship. Inspired by the Waxwing (Tilhi in Finnish), birdwatchers will also appreciate this piece.

Muurla Tilhi clear / white glass bird

I just received this bird which I had purchased as a Christmas gift for 2021 season. It is gorgeous. I am certain that the recipient is going to be delighted with it.

I did experience a packing issue but when I contacted the company they resolved it in a very timely and satisfactory manner. As a result, given the quality of the item and the excellent customer service I received, I would not hesitate to order from this company again.

Very pretty Tilhi bird and well made


Years ago I acquired the 2000 annual bird by Oiva: Arctic Tern. This year I purchased the Muurla Tilhi Clear White bird. This 2nd bird is as beautifully made as was the 1st bird - it doesn't matter that it's not an Oiva: what matters is the delicate beauty of the glass. The blown quality is gorgeous. The first bird cost hundreds of dollars. This 2nd bird cost less than $100. They are equally beautiful and well made. I love it!
