    Comments about HANDBLOWN GLASS HUMMINGBIRD ORNAMENT:

    I bought this as a Christmas present for my mother, who had a collection of glass hummingbird ornaments when we were growing up. Over the years many were broken so I was estatic when I saw this. It is expertly crafted... looks delicate, but much less fragile than I was expecting. Overall both my mother and I were extremely pleased with this item!

      I bought this as a Christmas ornament but once I recieved it and felt how light it was it seems like it should be used year round.

          We have a collection of hummingbirds and this one is a great addition.

          Service and delivery comments:

          They made the mistake of shipping the first glass hummingbird in an envelope. As you would expect it arrived broken. One quick email and they sent us a new one packaged a lot better in a box and it arrived promptly. Great customer service.
