Suncatcher clear glass bird - ID = Hadeland
« on: April 05, 2010, 07:11:16 PM »
It sort of reminds me of Oiva Toikka's Kastehelmi (Dewdrop) tableware pattern, or is that because it's bird shaped? ::)

About 16 cm long and 13cm tall, pattern on both sides.

It seems familiar but I have drawn a blank. Any ideas?

Cheers, John.

Bit of a bump really and has this seller made up the attribution? http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=200529674665&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT

Maybe I am going around in circles and they read it here. :cry:

Aha so you have one. I had seen the relation but this item is very lightweight, as opposed to all other Kastelhelmi I have ever handled - so I attributed it to inspiration or flattery. Until one turns up in Iittala documentation it will have to remain so...

Yes they are quite thin and light in weight Ivo, I had not made that distinction, the pattern is not really right for Kastehelmi either.

This one hangs in my kitchen, I have often wondered if they could start a fire like a paperweight can, all those little lenses focusing sunlight. Maybe I should check the focal lengths.....

I notice there is another one on ebay with the same attribution finishing in a few hours, that is, if anyone is interested and can handle the fire risk. >:D

Have just been surfing and ran into this: http://www.antique-vintage.net/glass/q135.html

So our birdies look like they may be from Hadeland and so Norwegian. :X:

John, I have added "-possibly Hadeland?" to the title. Might get some more looks.

Hi all,  I can verify they are Hadeland.  They came as a set of three in a box...An angel, A Christmas Tree and A Bird (yours).
 
How do I know?

Well, I had one (the bird) and sold it on eBay as iittala Kastehelmi, because that was what I was told it was,  then about a week later, a set came up for sale in its box with the pictures on the box as well.....Hadeland !!  I felt badly that I had missold ot,  but it was in all innocence....wish I had bought the set now!!

Hi Anik  :)

Yup,  it sure is, but they did several styles of Angel 3 to my knowledge, and the one in the box was the same style as the bird and the tree....wish I had bought it now,  but the bidding went too high.  They did a star as well......but I don't think that was in the boxed set.
I have to be honest and say I prefer your Angel,  much prettier and with more detail.
I'll see if I can find some reference to the boxed set, as that does then help.

Added 09.36am: Anik,  just had a better look at your Angel,  and on reflection,  looking at the little droplets on the skirt,  I think yours WAS the one in the set.  I don't remember the wings being so pretty.  I guess I was focusing more on the bird as I was feeling so guilty about mis selling it. :-[
