Permanent origami peace crane ornaments and cake toppers
by Nancy McNally from San Francisco.

The Extra Large Peace Crane was commissioned by a gallery for their holiday window. If you would like to commission an extra large crane please contact me to discuss paper selection This crane is 6 inches tall by 12 inches wide. The paper was designed by Erte and from England. It is heavy weight paper, a requirement for the extra large bird. There are no discounts for the extra large birds

This is a small version of the the Erte peace crane

This paper is derived from Erté designs. Erté was born Roman Tyrtov in 1892 in St. Petersburg (now Leningrad); his pseudonym was coined from the French pronunciation (Air-tay) of his initials. At the age of five, he was already sketching designs for dresses. His entranced mother had a dressmaker whip up one of his creations, which she wore with great éclat. In the library of his father, an admiral, young Erté found a book of reproductions of Persian and Indian miniatures; the boy was so delighted that he decided to become an artist.

I offer you the opportunity to have a peace crane fashioned out of your love letters,maps,logos or photocopied images on paper you or I provide.

Mobiles made of these cranes are a favorite way to display these cranes. A flock of birds or several birds are charming, with an arrangement of birds hung on branches, in a beautiful vase.
