Upside Down Chiltota (Orchard Oriole), Handmade Collectible Glass Art Figure

The orchard oriole, or “chiltota” as it is known in El Salvador, is depicted feeding upside down, as they are often seen in the wild when they migrate south to Central America during the winter. This is a handmade piece conceived by Margarita Llort is one of our most sold items, sought after for its unique combination of colors that truly pop in the glass medium.


El Salvador’s flora and fauna are the focus of Margarita Llort’s VitroNATURA collection, highlighting through intense colors and mystifying textures the features of El Salvador´s vivid wildlife. Margarita Llort’s pieces elegantly capture the often forgotten natural landscape of the unexpectedly diverse Central American country.


Help protect El Salvador´s biodiversity. When you purchase a piece from the VitroNATURA collection 25% of the proceeds go to SalvaNATURA Fundacion Ecologica, a not-for-profit organization devoted to preserving El Salvador´s natural habitat and animal diversity. Additionally, Vitrales de El Salvador recycles and upcycles whenever possible, implementing a “Zero Waste” approach to production. All of the left-over glass from large projects is creatively used in new items. Every purchase is kind to our planet!
