Only 300 of the iittala Toikka American Kestrel have been produced especially for the Museum of Glass, making this numbered bird a must-have for collectors. The American Kestrel is the most common and smallest Falcon found in North America, but it shares many of its features with the larger birds of prey in its family. These included its long, square-tipped tail and slim, pointed wings, which artist Oiva Toikka mirrors beautifully in his glass rendition. Perhaps the most striking feature of this bird, however, is the rich pink, purple, and blue coloring. They seems especially vivid in contracts to the clear, dotted glass that iittala's glassblowers have meticulously handcrafted, making each a unique piece of art.

This is Iittala

What started as a glass factory in Iittala, Finland, today celebrates generations of essential objects that are made to enrich people's everyday lives. We believe objects should be distinctive, combinable and multi-functional, with lasting design that inspires individual use and expression.

As a company based in Finland, where quality, aesthetics and functionality are important values, Iittala believes in interior design that lasts a lifetime. The progressive philosophy of our design heroes, Kaj Franck and Alvar Aalto, still inspires us to keep Iittala forever relevant.

We don't just create beautiful objects. We believe in timeless design that will never be thrown away.

Where it all started

The roots of Iittala date back to 1881 when a glass factory was established in a village of the same name in southern Finland.

In its early years Iittala produced blown, pressed, polished, painted and etched glass according to continental models.

In the beginning of the 20th century dinnerware was decorated with a variety of ornaments. Iittala was one of the first companies to make the transition from decorative dinner sets to functional, aesthetically pleasing objects infused with progressive Scandinavian design.
