Finland Glass Bird with rough gold finish, small beak but still Ovia-esk

Hi

Small bird with rough ground base and remains of plastic label. Almost able to read it but not quite there seems to be an oval segment in the middle in gold and then larger blue text underneath. Lindshammar and Nuutrajarvi aren't coming up with a match on the label.

I think it was made by Art Glass Team Oy of Loimaa in South Finland. I have seen these birds dated as being made between 1987 and 1998.

Thanks SP - definitely close with the patterned glass going under clear with the little raised fold line around body. Not matching the label up with them as yet as so few examples available. Many thanks

The label that I saw illustrated did have the Finnish flag on it, although not the same layout, and that isn't something that I am aware of that is used widely.
