whitefriars swan?

It doesn't look like a Whitefriars swan to me Ray.  It's too thick in the body for a start and the wings aren't crimped enough.

Only my VHO of course.  :)  I wish I could offer another manufacturer for you, but there's just SO many swans out there!

Always worth a go on of course.   :D

Hello Ray

Your swan has similarities to those made by Pairpoint ,the shape of the base and the thickness of the neck?
