Show and Tell Friday, smaller swans

This is a smaller Niloak swan, and she has a chip out on the inside as you can see below. The smaller swan is unmarked.

This blue girl and most of the ones pictured here today would have been used as Napkin holders as I discussed earlier in the series. The one below has a lot of crazing and I have trouble reading the markings on the bottom.

I think it says that it was made in 1987, which doesn't make it very old so I think the crazing was part of the glazing process, not a result of aging.

Here is another napkin holder!
This one is a little larger than the others and I am showing both sides since it is asymetrical. Unmarked.
