I come across this thread so thought Iíd ad these as i believe they are the Sowerby Swans (small and unmarked) dad also has a clear one. Regards Mike

These Opalescent green ones do not glow.

flying free:
there is a good line drawing of the swan here. Yours look the same as this line drawing I think:

Thanks Iíve not seen that page before, the Sowerby 1885 catalogue shows only some items were marked with a lozenge or peacock so itís not unusual for pieces from this period onwards not to be marked.

MHT:
Mike, your small swans are in the 1892 catalogue page 38, pattern number 1852.5 
http://www.victorianpressedglass.com/pdf/sowerby/sowerby_1892.pdf
Looks like they made a smaller version of pattern number 1852, as you say not unusual for them not to be marked at this date.
I have a few marked pieces in the same green stained, opalescent, Blanc de Lait glass.

Mike,
Thanks our frosted one is also unmarked, cheers Mike
