It was love at first sight.
Made by the esteemed Cambridge Glass Company, despite having some minor chips to it, this Vaseline glass swan has that magical X-factor which transcends any flaws and explains why it is most sought after by collectors.
Direct a black light at it and this large, hard-to-find Light Emerald swan and it will instantly go from an unassuming light depression green to a commanding, radiant green, illuminating its full feathered, beautifully detailed design.
What a breathtaking show stopper!
