Swan-Duck
« on: May 25, 2008, 05:35:39 PM »
Some of you may know I collect Whitefriars swans, but not ducks.  However, today I found this little chap who doesn't seem to know which he is!  ;D  So I bought him  ::)

(I know I'm likely to bring the wrath of the WF Dilly Duck collectors down on my head, but I actually like this little chap better than the WF ones - though not better than WF swans, of course!  ;) )

Anyone tell me anything about him?

(Hmm, just a moment while I take a gander...)  The head and neck look like a swan's to me.

BTW Leni, thanks for letting me use your cut glass photos for the motif article I'm doing!

Maybe it was from the "ugly duckling" story  :chky:

>:D  Are you implying he's ugly!  >:D   ;)

Just realised, I forgot to put size - again! :-[  ::)   He's just over 4 inches tall (10.5cm) and 4 and a half inches long (11.5cm)
