Any ideas about this swan?
« on: August 22, 2006, 03:39:59 PM »
Thanks for your help on the items I posted a week or two back ~ much appeciated.
Can anyone give me any information about this swan (there's actually a pair of them)? There's a bit of red in the eyes and beak, in case it doesn't show to well in my picture!
Cheers, John.

My guess is that this is a frigger or craft shop item. Production swans tend to be more refined. Which is not a put down as it has wonderful charm and that gives it an edge over most of the genre.
