They can sit on a bench ect and they have holes to hang on the wall like the classic deco Three Flying Ducks!


This is the only marking I can see... A number 8 ?

Crown Lynn made similar birds, but they are numbered 547.
You can find a Museum drawing of them in the 500 - 599 Crown Lynn Shapes Gallery.

I have seen a few of these similar swallow sets listed on Trademe - I've never seen them in real life.
I grew up with the three ducks hanging on the wall - no idea who made them or where they are now lolz

Im not sure but I am looking for the same answer

Post  NurseJackiNZ on Tue 2 Sep - 21:32

I have similar swallows which I know are very old. I have an auction for them at the moment on trade and and also have photos of makings if anyone can help. I cannot not list a link as I am a new member but the listing number is 775319894. Hope that may help:)

Hi there, here is a link to Crown Lynn Swallows and these have 547 plus a number on them -
http://www.newzealandpottery.net/t686-crown-lynn-swallow-547-3-from-hon-john?highlight=swallow

Also Titian Swallows and they have F.102 on the bases -
http://www.newzealandpottery.net/t4325-titian-swallow-courtesy-of-emmitt

I can't see any numbers on your one, are there any?
Personally I don't think that your Swallows are Crown Lynn or Titian.

Perhaps they were made by one of the English potteries?  I found the same swallows on etsy, but there is no maker identified -

I have got these swallows too and they are not Titian or Crown Lynn. I am sorry but they look like Chinese copies to me (the ones listed on Trade Me
http://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=775319894 not the ones shown first on this topic).

Yes I agree, they are very similar but I had a good look at mine & the feather pattern is different, especially on tail.. still they are lovely examples. cat
