Handmade Collector’s Glass Figurine
The Snow pigeon by Iittala is an artistic decorative object designed in 1972 that is ideal as a gift or for collecting. The designer Oiva Toikka created his first Iittala Birds as far back as the 1970s, and since then they have become available in various shapes. Meanwhile the collection has grown to include more than 400 birds, and is continually expanding.
The Snow pigeon also fits in seamlessly with the collection, impressing the beholder with the fine grain on its light glass surface. Only the beak is different to the rest of the body, and appears - like on a real snow pigeon - in a darker colour.
The Snow pigeon is carefully crafted using a glass pipe in the glass workshop Nuutajärvi. This makes each Snow pigeon a highly unique piece that blends in with a wide variety of furnishings, spreading its wintry charm.
