Crown Lynn swan numbers query.

Post  casee on Tue 17 Aug - 9:35

Just a query to see if any of your members would know why my crown lynn swan, has a crown stamp with the star under, but I can not find a number on it and was unsure as to why it did not have one, are they all normally stamped with one. Its a lovely creamy colour. Thank you for your help.

I think there were gremlins at work at Crown Lynn omitting numbers just for fun to confuse future collectors!!

I am not aware of the white being rarer than the cream but it is always nice to see a perfect white swan - and they do seem to sell well.

Welcome to the site kbchez Very Happy
I saw your thread in the Collectors Forum and checked out your unusual swan.
Could the numbers be 2065?
Is this a little swan? If so it is extremely unusual in that colour!
I've never seen that dark grey colour before .... only black-black.
Good luck with your auction .... yes I am watching it Very Happy

Our Swanologist HeatherT has confirmed that the 2066 swan is the large swan.
So I will update the swan numbers topic.

kbchez's swan auction

If the black glaze that was used was too thin it would fire a similar colour to your swan.
