Glass Swans





I hope you think my glass swans are as pretty as I do. My mother gave me the one on the left. I found the one on the right at a yard sale. They don't match exactly, but I think they make a good pair. I know they are old, from the sixties, I believe. They live on top of the cabinet shown below. I think they look very happy up there with some of my other treasures.

I had to embiggen the photo to get a good view...I was curious to see what was in the crystal jar to the left...is that tiny scrolls or what?

Love the hand blown glass swans. The coloration is gorgeous.

My Show n Tell is something I made for Halloween, if you'd like to stop over and critique it I'd be happy.

My aunt has something similar and I do believe they are from the sixtys. You sure don't see anything made like it today! Have a great weekend.

Those swans look great. They are almost the same. It is such an art to make them from glass. They really are little treasures.
Thank you so much for sharing and have a wonderful weekend !!

What a beautiful set! And fortunate that you were able to find one so close at yard sale of all places.

My Mom use to have swans in a different color! I remember them! They look lovely on top of your cabinet. I am curious too, what is in that crystal jar? Is it cork bottle stoppers?
Love, Ann

I have one of these art glass items too. I have a vase with pink/white glass ribbons laced through it and
it forms a very artsy flowing floral
shape! These swans are very pretty!

Good morning,
I missed this yesterday but here I am on Pink Sat.
Your swans are lovely. I like your jar of wine corks, too.
Have a good weekend...
