With distinctive, vibrant red plumage, the Northern Cardinal is a national favourite. The Cardinal is associated with luck, loyalty, love and devotion. In many cultures, sightings of Cardinals signify a message from a loved-one that has passed away; the cheerful red bird radiating feelings of hope or joy to those they visit.
This Cardinal pair is created entirely from glass - no paints, glazes or molds. The shape was designed and hand-cut, then layers of coloured crushed glass built up on the clear shape before firing the bird is in a kiln over many hours. The Glass Bakery initials each bird on their reverse. The adult and chick Cardinal pair comes with their own detachable log perch that has been sanded on the underside for stability. Simply slot the bird's legs into the holes in the top side of the wood.
Size: Approximately 3.5"H for adult & 2.5"H for chick (not including legs or wood)

Made in Canada
Each bird will vary slightly from one another due to the nature of handmade glass. Please expect minor variations in tone and shade due to the handcrafted, unique and whimsical nature of the work.The direction the bird is facing will vary randomly.Because the birds are created using successive layering of glass, their detail is best seen from the front.
