Stangl introduced Antique Ivory and Turquiose Blue Crackled birds in 1941. These crackled birds were made by dipping the birds in a dye and then covering them with a clear glaze. Originally six birds were available in both finishes. They were the 3273 rooster, the 3274 penquin, the 3276 bluebird, the 3400S lovebird, the 3405S cockatoo, and the 3444 cardinal.
