iittala bird by Toikka Sand Waiter
DESIGNER: Oiva Toikka
One of the late Oiva Toikka's most stunning and statuesque designs gets dressed in iittala's soft and soothing shade called "Sand." Trusty assistant to the Butler, the iittala Toikka Waiter is the more petite of the pair but equally exquisite. His upright stance is forever frozen in a pleated piece of clear glass, a stunning texture that is carried down from the top of his head to the rounded base of his balanced feet. Waiter takes the same pride in his appearance as he does in his profession, sporting sparkling clean hair that has been handcrafted from opalescent glass and crisply combed to create body and texture. The flared out tail of his formal coat and his pointed, prominent beak give him a dignified silhouette from a profile view, though he is naturally handsome from any angle. While you may not be in need of any wait staff, the iittala Toikka Waiter's welcoming nature will make him an indispensable addition to your family of these mouth-blown birds.The birds of Oiva Toikka's 2014 collection are individually mouth-blown by the master glassblowers at iittala’s glassworks shop. Each handcrafted iittala Toikka Waiter carries the signature “O. Toikka Iittala” on its base to ensure authenticity.
