Long-Tailed Duck - Alli- Oiva Toikka Birds Nuutajärvi Finland
Long-Tailed Duck glassbirds by Oiva Toikka. Alli in Finnish. Here we have two beautiful variants of Long-tailed duck. One with a lighter colouring and with some golden brown from the inside shining through and the other in dark green and with a prominent golden lustre.
You can read about Long-Tailed Duck (Alli) on page 18 in the book "Birds by Toikka" and on page 71 in "In OIva's Wonderland".
Long-tailed Duck was in production for many years, from 1981-2009, and over the years some change in both coloration and shape took place.
Elsewhere on this site you can find an earlier representative of the Long-Tailed Duck. The early variants have a rounder body and are not metallic.
