Show and Tell Friday Swans 3

Show and Tell Friday with Kate's Swans continues!






These are the swans that started it all. Once again, it is those swoopy lines I love. And the pastel colors. And the fact that they are McCoy pottery. When I bought these some 25-30 years ago, they cost me between $6-8 but now they are hard to find for less than $25. They stand about 9 inches tall and 6 inches wide. I still need the yellow one, but it will show up when it will. My McCoy collection has the solid pastel greens, pinks, blues and some darker blue greens. I don't much care for the painted pieces, but, as you will see later, some of my swans have painted beaks and feet. Anyhow, next to the shell swan from last week, these are my favorites!

They must be beautiful with flowers in them!

Today two swans honked as they flew past my open window, I told my husband that it must be spring! They were looking for open water.

Very nice McCoy pottery. Lucky you bought yours when you did those were a great price. I can see why you like them so much they are beautiful. I especially like the pastel green color. I collect Jadite and it reminds me of the color of Jadite.
