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.

Sweet Birdies

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!

They are cheap. That's the long and short of it. They may be advertised as made of glass but feel like they are made of plastic. They are poorly painted at best and "accented" with kindergarten glitter. The saddest part is that I asked my dear husband to give them to me for Christmas... They will be returned.

I (we) have ordered items from Nat Geo in the past and have been very happy with the quality for the price. This time however was a major disappointment.

      I purchased these as a gift for my kids who were getting their first Xmas trees in their own homes.. The ornaments were of such poor quality that I did not give them. Except for National Geo books, my experience has been that the items on sale are not of good quality and do not match the photos in the on line catalog.

        THIS IS THE SECOND TIME I'VE BOUGHT THESE. I TAKE THEM TO OUR FAMILY CHRISTMAS CELEBRATION AND EVERYONE PUTS THEM ON THE TREE. WHEN WE LEAVE EACH PERSON TAKES A BIRD HOME. WE CHOOSE BIRDS DIFFERENT FROM THE ONE WE GOT LAST TIME. THAT WAY EACH FAMILY GETS A COLLECTION FOR THEIR OWN TREES.

            These darling little songbirds make lovely small gifts for many occasions - I split them up and gave three to several friends at holiday time and kep a few for myself. They were fun to give and well received.
