swanning around....

Here is a pic of a Crown Lynn swan - (courtesy of the Crown Lynn Shape Guide and Shazza.)
(for those overseas who have asked the question recently, "what is a crown lynn swan?")

These swans come in different sizes and are somewhat of a collectors item. They are vases, once full of elegant blooms.

They have a lovely smooth finish and are, or were, found in homes all over the country.

My daughter is on a mission to own one!

A little bit of randomness!

I won one of those as an athletics prize when young; but not sure if I still have it - might be hidden away somewhere.

Pretty! We have a Crown Lynn dinner set, design is Heritage 1880 - sepia-tone buildings on cream background.
