Oiva Toikka Nuttajarvi Bird Date Please?
« on: December 08, 2005, 04:32:17 AM »
Hi I have a pair of these they are actually grey not blue for some reason my camera is doing funny things with colours.  The are rather large measuring 8 1/2 inches x 5 3/4 inches.  They have red heads, are signed with stickers but I am interested in the year or any other info people could give me thankyou.

Thank you ivo.  I like to catologue all my items for reference for my daughter in the future when one day she will inherit all my items.  I also have posted another couple of birds that I have not a clue as to their origin.  They were sold to me at auction as possibly stromberg if you'd care to take a look.  They came from the same person I bought these 2 nuutajarvi from & I know they mainly collected scandanavian glass, so I'm assuming there from there somewhere.

Found one on ebay

Hi Ivo I found the exact same bird on ebay but being sold as is as has a broken beak.  They just have it listed as red head bird but definitely looks the same as mine.
