This is from the Richard Quinn Collection that is in the Crown Lynn: Pottery for the People Exhibition at the Gus Fisher Gallery.
This is a 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.

Saw a large Female $700 and a Medium $400 swan today at the Central Flea Market in Balmoral Road.
The trader called them 'After Hours' swans as they were taken home by Crown Lynn workers who glazed and lustred them for a Pearl wedding anniversary present, and only 2 of each were made, according to the person he got them from. Neither swan has any stamps or numbers on their bases.

Te Toi Uku has a Medium Swan in this glazing technique in their Richard Quinn Collection and it has 2147 on the base.

I have seen this same glaze technique on something else, perhaps a vase or even a dolphin, but I can't locate it. A small pottery like Cera Ceramics perhaps.

For the record, two more gold beaked swans turned up on Instagram @forageandfossic
I haven't seen them in the real world yet, but hope to.
A Medium and a Baby swan.

Flaire New Zealand also made this Heron and I believe that Hemara was the modeller for this shape.

So excited about these developments, but I will have to wait until lockdown to be over before I can do some research.

Interesting! Just a note to say that over the years I have seen that heron with a number of different labels and decorations. Someone must have been making the blanks and selling them to decorators. I don't think I have ever seen a Hobby Ceramics version but I can't be sure of that.
