A beautiful Crake by Oiva Toikka in delicate white and brown filigree and with green head. The bird is called "Huitti" in Finnish. This rare bird was in production 1998-2002 for mail order.The surface of the bird is a sensation to touch because of the unbelievable regular striated filigree pattern! And the bottom looks more or less like someone's fingerprint.
You can find the bird on page 57 in the book "Birds by Toikka" and on page 88 in the book "In Oiva's Wonderland".Size: 167mm x 110mmCondition: ExcellentSignature: O.Toikka Nuutajärvi
