For Toikka fanatics, Flycatcher will be a familiar friend. This collection was the first to take flight in the 1972 when Oiva Toikka started on the journey of designing these beloved birds to be hatched yearly from mouth-blown glass. The 2021 relaunch features a family of colorful Flycatchers that are as endearing and enduring as the originals. Here in the iittala color called Salmon, this pretty pink bird is contrasted by a bright blue beak. The small size allows them to line up along windowsills and other nest-like nooks around the home or office.

Though petite, each is packed with personality and will be cherished for its sweet simplicity for many more years to come.

Always like these flycatchers. The color is pretty much what I had hoped for--more orange than pink. Salmon is a good word choice for the color. Wish the Toikka studio would make more brighter colors such as lime green, light purple and turquoise. Lovely purchase!!
