A rare opportunity not to be missed, the Snow Owl was specially designed for Stockmann of Finland but is now exclusive to FinnStyle and its partner sites. This unique origin, combined with distinctive design and excellent craftsmanship, makes it a must-have for iittala glass bird collectors. Resting regally on a flat bottom, it shares a strong cylindrical shape with Oiva Toikka's other owls. But like in nature, what sets Snow Owl apart from others in its family is its frosted white coat, glistening with specks of opalescent glass. And while simple, the slightly protruding face provides a powerful persona; the winter stunner's wondrous, wide-eyed stare is true to nature and quick to enchant its onlookers.Artist Oiva Toikka of Finland renders the beauty of nature in captivating crystal birds.
