The suncatcher is labelled a sparrow in Hadelandâ€™s catalogue. Itâ€™s part of a series of suncatchers designed as Christmas decorations, made from early 1980s until late 1990s. Made in FLC, they also comprised a heart, a stocking, a bell, an angel, a star, a Christmas tree and two different snow flakes. Some were also available in green and blue. No designer is named in the catalogues of the time.
Small birds like sparrows are common symbols of Christmas, as a reminder to let the benign spirit of Christmas extend to the little ones as well, and feed them during the harsh winter.
