...........and 2 swans as well!! (Marcolin)
« on: May 05, 2011, 02:47:49 PM »
As if last week wasn't exciting enough, I also found both of these beautiful Marcolin swans.
The white one in a boot fair, and the grey one on eBay........I am so pleased,  my Scandinavian glass collection is getting better and better. ;)

Both are in perfect condition...... I love them!
There is also a pristine label on the white swan which I will post in case Ingela wants it for her reference library.

You have D-40-10 and D-41-15

I don't know what D stands for but then you have the model number, followed by the size.

The size can be in millimeter or centimeter. You have the size in centimeter, so the white swan is 10cm (4") and the black swan is 15cm (6")
