inherited from my great aunt in 2000, she was 98 when she died so not sure how long she had this or how old it is. It looks like a kind of swan? There is some engraving on the bottom which looks like "Hisieton Claude" then the number 114. It is quite heavy, i'm not sure what the metal is, I wouldn't say silver because its not tarnished. Any help would be great.

    Greetings from Philadelphia. Looks either like 1930s or mid-century modernist bird sculpture - maybe pewter or base metal? My first thought was 60s or 70s in the Scandinavian style.
    Perhaps if you can better discern or show a photo of the bottom label/makers mark it would be more helpful to other viewers. Good luck finding more information.
