Annual Bird 2021 Amethyst Kesuri

Annual Bird 2021 Amethyst Kesuri

Regular price $790.00 Sale


iittala's annual bird Kesuri is crafted from amethyst-coloured glass.
Chosen as iittala's annual colour for 2021 and the brand’s 140th anniversary, the enchanting shade is a great example of iittala’s unique expertise in coloured glass: the bird changes hue depending on the lighting!
In natural light, the colour is a nuanced, warm purple, but artificial light makes it shift to a cooler blue-grey colour.
The annual bird is available for a limited time only.

The first glass birds of Birds by Toikka collection were designed in 1972 by Professor Oiva Toikka, renowned for his unique contribution to Finnish art glass. So far hundreds of species have been created, some of them more enduring in production than others. Each bird is a mouth-blown, unique individual, signed with the artist’s name. The passing of time enhances the value of these art objects – that is why Birds by Toikka are cherished and valued gifts and irresistible to collectors around the world.
