      Ah, it's Odile or Odette- I can never tell but either way every one of your swans remind me of Swan Lake which I love because their all so pretty! This one is so elegant with her long curling neck and the glass work on her head makes me think of a little crown, I can just picture her gliding and hiding in the reeds in a misty, glassy lake.

      Thanks MrsT for the kind compliment, it is certainly good to find a glass animal with the original label, in the case of Murano there are many imitators so was happy to find this

      Gillian what a lovely compliment, thanks so much! I really love the peach color too, it's hard to find in glass animals, I just have one other but this swan is a deeper, prettier shade

      Thanks Thomas for the super praise, I am so glad you saw the elegance in this & you always say the nicest things

      Lauren, right on with the Swan Lake comparison! The crown definitely makes this swan look like the set decoration swans (sometimes they glide across too!) from the ballet, which I loved and saw several times, plus have videos, dvds & the musical score. It could either be Odette or Odile the imposter, I think I prefer Odette though :) Lovely comment as always I thank you
