Bird raising in China dates back to the founding of the Qing dynasty in 1644. Members of the new elite class spent their time in teahouses showing off their birds with friends and learning about new and different species. These whimsical, brightly colored blown-glass ornaments celebrate that traditional love for small songbirds as well as the deeper mythological belief that birds are a link between heaven and Earth. 2 3/4''L.

      Comments about Set of 12 Blown-glass Chinese Songbirds:

      Just received these birds. They are pretty and nicely packaged, but they look somewhat different from the ones in the photo. The paint finish on the birds does not have that characteristic sheen of painted, blown glass ornaments. The paint has more of a matte finish on many of the birds. And they have quite a bit of glitter on them - not obvious in the photos - which is something I tend to avoid given the mess glitter creates.

        These cute birds each have their own personalities. The set comes in two boxes of six, so it would be easy to keep one and gift the other guilt free!

        The Seguso family of Murano, Italy, has been listed in that city’s census of master glassblowers since the 1300s. In 1954 Sao Paulo invited Mario Seguso to create commemorative art glass for its 400th anniversary. He became so enchanted with the country that he moved there, where his sons continue the family tradition. This substantial Murano glass vase is inspired by the colorful energy of Carnival in the Segusos’ adopted country.
