    I RECENTLY PURCHASED THESE SWANS AND AM TRYING TO ASCERTAIN MAKER. I BELIEVE DECORATIVE IN NATURE - THEY ARE LIFE / FULL SIZE AND APPEAR TO HAVE GLASS EYES. THE LARGER ONE HAS A RING SCREW HOLDING NECK IN PLACE AND WHEN REMOVED THE NAME 'J W COOPER' IS ON THE UNDERSIDE OF NECK PIECE. I CAN FIND NOTHING REGARDING J W COOPER AND WOULD APPRECIATE ANY HELP THAT SOMEONE CAN GIVE ME. I BELIEVE THEY ARE WOODEN, CRACKLE FINISH IN PAINT. THE LARGER ONE MEASURES ROUGHLY 32X13X24H AND THE SMALLER ROUGHLY 26X11X19H. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR HELP.

      Could it be Couper?

      But they are just magical!

      I know this post is from 3 years ago but my mother also has one of these swans (she absolutely loves it) and we are trying to get a new one as it broke. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you
