Only 300 of the Scarlet Tanager Cranberry have been produced, and each is signed and numbered. It was designed by Oiva Toikka for the Corning Museum of Glass in Tacoma and mouth-blown by the iittala glass masters in Finland. The festive shade of cranberry makes this US-exclusive bird make it a must-have for collectors this season, though it will bring beautiful richness to the flock year-long. Iridescent blue accents the tail and beak for a bit of interest and contrast on this sleek and stream-lined beauty.

The color is a beautiful cranberry red. Unfortunately the head is the same color as the body which makes it hard to see. In order to see the head I tied a piece of black and white checkerboard ribbon around its neck. The tail is sort of a dark greenish color. I placed it on a table with another bird I purchased and it looks nice. I’m disappointed as this bird was a lot of money.
ProsColor is beautiful
ConsThe head should be a different color so it doesn?t get lost.

I've collected Toikka glass birds for years from the time I worked in Helsinki often around Christmas. I also watch for sales like this one. I can't think of a nicer addition to my flock. They are always top of the line in terms of quality and FinnStyle has made it possible to buy them and other Finnish products in the US. Nice job and thank you.
