Mystery Sowerby Swan vase
The swan vase on the left is unmarked and is different to the Queensware version on the right|
Most of the swans you see are like the Queensware version, even the version made in carnival glass from the 1920's onwards is from the same, older mould
This pink version is different, there are no gaps between the body of the vase and the neck and feet of the swans, the overall design is not so well defined and there is no Sowerby mark.
The colour is pink so it suggests it was probably made later than the originals, perhaps in the 1930's?
Is this a piece of Sowerby glass or a copy from another manufacturer?
