This is from the Richard Quinn Collection that is in the Crown Lynn: Pottery for the People Exhibition at the Gus Fisher Gallery.
The medium swan and it's the first swan that I've seen that has a gold beak.
The wings and head appear to have been waxed before glazing to resist the glaze, except for the tips of the feathers where pearl lustre has been applied onto the glaze.  Couldn't get close enough to see if the whole swan was lustred, but it is more than likely to be.  Very unusual and extremely beautiful.
