NUUTAJARVI GLASS BIRD can any tell me what it says
« on: September 04, 2010, 05:09:34 PM »
Hi can anyone tell me what the name of this bird is please? I think it says royal viking sun is that its name or does it say something else? I would be most grateful if someone can decipher it for me. Any info. on this would be a godsend, thank you.

Looking at "Birds. Small miracles", a little book with a load of Oiva Toikka birds illustrated, it is a Little Tern (designed 2002), dimensions are quoted as 75 x 110mm. The rest of the engraving sounds like a second company's name.

It may have been marked as a corporate gift or a souvenir. The Royal Viking Sun is/was a cruise ship http://www.simplonpc.co.uk/SanFran2RVSun.html

Sorry no idea what's engraved apart from what I can make out, O. Toikka and Nuutajarvi on the one side and on the other I can see that there is more than just Royal Viking Sun but can't see it clearly in this photo.

John

Does it also have engraved "built by Wartsila......."?

By jove, you've cracked it John. Yes it does say built by Wärtsilä and it was, in 1988. This must be an anniversary piece, perhaps.

It may have been a gift to crew or a passenger, is it M/S (motor ship) Royal Viking Sun? Would still like to work out the rest of it, how about some more photos of the engraving? ;D
