  1. When was the Birds by Toikka series first produced?
  2. Oiva Toikka's iconic collection of glass birds first launched in 1972 at the Nuutajärvi glass factory. The Birds by Toikka series was initially made in a rich shade of vivid green, combining Toikka's passion for nature with his skilled glassblowing techniques to create unique art objects. Each bird is mouthblown at the Iittala Glass Factory and carries its own intricate details that make it one-of-a-kind. In 2014, production of the Birds by Toikka series was transferred to the Iittala Glass Factory where Toikka continued his close collaboration with the glassblowers.
  3. What is the design structure of Birds by Toikka 115x55mm Whip-poor-will?
  4. The Birds by Toikka 115x55mm Whip-poor-will has a rounded and fluid form, designed in 1991 as part of the ”Birds” series. It is mouth-blown and hand crafted, giving it distinctive character and color variations. The bird measures 115 x 55 mm, with its green colour bringing joyous expressions to admirers.
  5. What are the precautionary measures to be taken when displaying Toikka glass sculptures around children?
  6. Glass sculptures like the Toikka Bird can easily break if knocked over and the sharp edges can cause injury. It is important to keep the sculptures out of reach of children and away from areas where they may accidentally knock them over. Additionally, it is important to inspect the sculptures regularly for any signs of damage that could potentially lead to injury.
  7. How do I clean and maintain my Toikka Bird?
  8. To properly clean and maintain your Toikka Bird, it is important to regularly dust the bird. This will help prevent any build up of dirt or grime that can be harmful to the bird's health. When cleaning, use a damp cloth with a small amount of vinegar free window cleaner for best results.
  9. What can I expect from Birds by Toikka's Whip-poor-will?
  10. By owning a Whip-poor-will from the Toikka bird collection, you can expect an exquisite hand-crafted glass bird that has a vibrant cranberry color that will bring joyous expressions to all who admire it. This piece would be perfect for any collector or anyone looking for something truly special to display in their home.

        Excellent delivery and customer services, even during difficult times like Covid 19.

        Recently purchased a Nordic Style candle holder, which I had admired at a recent stay at a holiday home in Norfolk.  Product arrived very quickly. Contact via email from Jonathan. Excellent customer service and a gorgeous product too.

        Couldn't have been better and will certainly buy from the company again.

        I can’t recommend highly enough.

        First class service.

        Great range of products.

        Purchased a beautiful rug from here and had a smooth overall buying experience.

        Excellent product but more importantly during these difficult times was the customer service level and great delivery team ....

        take note Heal’s as you’ve not got a clue how to service customers

        Very good service, great communication and arrived very promptly

        Thank you

        Really excellent customer service. Can not recommend this company highly enough - the products are high quality and their communication with the customer is first class. Jonathon always responded promptly to any queries and was very helpful.

        I would definitely buy from them again.

        Bought some lovely wine glasses as a gift, quick delivery, great customer service and high quality product.

        Would definitely buy from Olson and Baker again.

        Fantastic customer service throughout the ordering process.

        Great products - really pleased with my order.

        So glad I came across Olson & Baker for my home accessories that I would not find elsewhere on the High Street.

        The service is superb and the website is so intuitive! 10 out of 10! :D Lee

        Olson + Baker were wonderful to deal with.

        We purchased our item (a beautiful coat hook) but had to delay delivery due to a trip overseas.

        We weren't dealing with an automated system, just real people who cared enough to help.
