This utterly charming early piece of Staffordshire pottery is quite unique as these delicate swans are rarely seen. This is one of several from the same period which are in the shop and they make a lovely decorative touch, either on their own, or in a group 'floating' down the centre of a table. It also looks delightful with a small potted plant tucked into its watertight base.
It is a creamy white crackle glaze with no other colouring on the beak, the eyes or the feet. The total length is 7 1/2 inches, the total height to the top of the head is 6 inches and it is 5 inches wide at the largest point. The overall condition is very good other than a small chip on the inside edge of the right wing; several other nibbles and microchips on the upper rim and on the tail and a very small stress crack at the base of one side of the neck. None of these are particularly noticeable and do not detract from this piece but are always worth mentioning. The bottom of the base is unmarked. The last photo shows this swan in the middle of a smaller pair.
