EDIT - This is a real mystery. The final catalogue and the facebook page from Studio Ceramics show four swans, as illustrated below. However were these four swans actually all made? We have been unable to find anyone who remembers them actually being manufactured. One of life's little mysteries. xx

Thanks to other researchers, we now have the four sizes of swans made at Studio Ceramics.  These images are from The Motel Shop website, which sold Studio Ceramics ware until they ran out after the factory closed.

Yes and Studio Ceramics didn't get the Medium Swan mould when Crown Lynn closed, so never made that shape.
The Crown Lynn Medium Swan shape has turned up from other potteries e.g. De Arn, so perhaps they grabbed the mould. .... ?

A studio Ceramics catalogue from 2011 has only two swans under the title retro lynn the colour s are matt cream,matt black, gloss pink and Aqua. I think this information is incorrected and I don't remember these.

I bought a Large Pink Studio Ceramics Swan for a 21st around 12 years ago and there were only two sizes to choose from. Large and Baby.
I wonder when the other sizes were made?
