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!

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.

      Comments about Set of 12 Blown-glass Chinese Songbirds:

      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.

        These little ornaments are a bird-lover's delight. No bird in the set accurately depicts any of the real birds in my bird book, and that is part of their charm. They have a delicate sparkle, and their colors are amazing. I can't wait to put them on my tree this Christmas!
