Nothing beats the bond between mother and baby, and Oiva Toikka offers a unique perspective on the relationship with the beauty of mouth-blown glass. For your own mother, child, or anyone collects Toikka birds, this special set will make a thoughtful and timeless gift. Both pieces are handcrafted in the warm hue of iittala's 2015 color "Desert," but each has its own unique detail; the mother carries beautiful brown specks throughout the body, while the baby dons a darling pair of back wings eager for flight.The birds of Oiva Toikka's 2015 collection are individually mouth-blown by the master glassblowers at iittala’s glassworks in Finland. Each handcrafted iittala Toikka Mother and Baby carries the signature “O. Toikka IITTALA” on its base to ensure authenticity.
