On the Seventh Day of Christmas…

My true love gave to me…

A very large antique majolica swan! May not be seven swans, but he is big enough that we don’t need seven!

This is made by the same manufacturer of King Ludwig II’s large swan at Neuschwanstein castle! Sold at auction for $12,000! WOW!

    Oh my goodness! Such magnificent craftsmanship… Look at the details from the head to the webbed feet. This is when the expression comes into fullness, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Unique.

      isn’t it really cool! It is so detailed! This swan doesn’t bite, either!

    Oh, my! It’s beautiful! It looks like it is heavy. You need a special place for (him-her?)this lovely to sit!

    I have been to Neuschwanstein many years ago and unfortunately I don’t remember much about the swan(s). Are there more than one? I do remember that it was a long walk up to the castle! If I could go back I’d be sure to remember the swan this time!

    Thanks for sharing your new beauty!

      There is a big giant swan very similar to this one. There are various swan motifs throughout the castle too!
