Hi all, is anyone able to tell me the maker of this cheeky bird please?

He is Hollow, about 5" long from tip of tail to tip of beak.
Just less than 3.5" high, and has the cheekiest look on his face!

I suspect he may be Scandinavian, but am not certain.  I have other hollow blown Scandinavian birds that are in some ways similar, but lack all the detail that this one has had added. They are more stylised.
Pics added to help you, but there is no makers mark or signature, I'm afraid.

Langham Glass?
I can't see your one in the catalogue, but he does look closely related!

The brown frit reminds me of my bears. I thought they might be Wedgwood, but they turned out to be Fifth Ave. Crystal from China. I hope your bird does not share their fate. I gave my two bears to charity.

I have a yellow bird in the same technique and it took me more than 20 years to find out it is from Boda  :t:

Hi all,  :hi: thanks everyone for your input.  I know it isn't Langham Glass....and I feel it is too well made to be anything other then Scandinavian,  so I wonder if you may be correct Ivo, and maybe it is Boda......is there any way I can find a reference for this???
