Firebird for SSKK 1982 - Oiva Toikka Nuutajärvi RARE
Firebird for Finnish Book Store in 1982, designed by Oiva Toikka. That means produced 70 years ago. This early SSKK bird, is very rarely for sale. It is numbered 407/500.
This bird is of clear bright red glass that, well correlating to its name, turns into a yellowish orange tone towards the bottom. It has slightly diffuse, broad, lustred bands all over the body but not at all on the front part, which leaves an opportunity to admire the "fire" inside, especially in bright light.
This is yet another example of a bird from the early production, with nice features to explore, and that leavs one once again wondering how it is possible to discribe such things with glass.
Size: 155mm x 110mm Condition: Very Good (insignificant wear on the underside) Signature: Oiva Toikka Nuutajärvi Notsjö 407/500
