Lovely Old Czech-Slovakia Ceramic Swan Vase/Bowl
- Bowl, Vase
- Ceramic, Pottery
- Antique (used)
This realistically modeled ceramic swan with its graceful curved neck and raised wings is actually a vase or bowl. It is delightfully detailed, from the molded feathers to its gray webbed feet. Underneath it is stamped in brown in a circle "Made in Czech-Slovakia," dating this beautiful bird from between 1918 to 1939. It is also stamped "49." The swan is approximately 5 inches long and 4 inches high. It is in wonderful condition for its age, with no breaks or repairs. On top of the upper curve of its neck is a tiny black dot, about the size of a pinhead, which occurred during the manufacturing process. Swans are symbols of faithfulness, because they are said to mate for life. Think of what a perfect gift this elegant swan would be for a significant other, cradling a perfect rose or a few luscious chocolate truffles between its wings!
