Extinct Flightless Large Bird - Dodo Christmas Ornament, 3 3/4 inches, from the Merck Family's Old World Christmas Glass Ornaments collection. OWC # 16114. (2017 Mid-Year New Release)
This fun ornament is a depiction of the real bird species known as the Dodo Bird, most will remember it from the "Alice in Wonderland" story book. The design includes the bird standing on a log in a grassy area. This ornament is nicely detailed on all sides, made of blown glass, delicately hand-painted and has sparkling hand-glittered accents. (New 2017)
Interesting Info: The bird species is known for its long beak, short wings and fluffy feathered tail. Per various online sources, including Wikipedia, this bird was from an island in the Indian Ocean with a last known existence around 1662. Genetics show, though over 3 feet tall, this bird is actually related to today's pigeons.

Whether part of an Alice in Wonderland theme or to complete a bird collection, this is an odd, funny addition with nice colors, extensive glittering, and good details.
Very nice dodo bird; an unusual subject. Old World Christmas's realistic treatment of animal subjects is much appreciated by a naturalist like me. Some ornament makers trend towards "cute" ornaments. I like a realistic treatment.
