Burtles & Tate swan sizes, no 4 and largest so far?
« on: March 26, 2021, 07:13:41 PM »
Is this old hat or is this size of this B&T swan of interest? I can find lengths online at 9, 12 and 14 cm but this one is 18cm - 7".

Opalescent pink, expected rd number, 18cm long and 14cm tall.

I think that is the biggest one they made. I have one in white, looks very nice in pink.

Thank you both, I could only find reference to three sizes and it made no sense that this was some strange outlier.

If I had looked on your website before now Mike I would have seen your photo with the four....

There is enough purple to make it respectable.
It's not a fluffy pink swan.  ;)
