Made especially for the Museum of Glass, the Violet Green Swallow is an evergreen addition to any Toikka collection. Only 300 of these special edition birds have been made in Finland by iittala, and each is numbered x/300 on its base. Because every bird is handmade and mouth-blown, each is a one-of-a-kind work of art. The sponge-like speckling on its belly can be white, blue, or a mixture of both, and the iridescent spots down its back can reflect violet tones along with many other hues just like the Violet Green Swallow found in nature. All will share a transparent emerald green body and beautiful iridescent beak.



  • ITEM #: II-BR367133
  • MATERIAL: Mouth-blown glass
  • COUNTRY: Designed in Finland, Made in Finland
  • Signed O. Toikka IITTALA MOG 2020 x/300
  • Limited to 300 and numbered x/300

Where's the violet?
May 12, 2022
I guess I was unlucky enough to not have any violet hue on my bird. While the price was great, the bird was mediocre. I have many many Toikka birds, so I am familiar with the quality of the line,

Lovely

This is my second iittala Toikka bird and I love it! The green is a lovely color and both of my birds look very nice together on our fireplace mantle. Both of the iittala birds that I have purchased from Finnstyle were carefully wrapped.
