I bought this swan recently assuming it was Whitefriars, on way home realised that I had never seen Whitefriars in that colour so thought  probably wrong.
Further investigations suggest that alimited number were produced in pink.
Hoping someone can confirm yes or no and  if yes just how uncommon are these.
Thanks JohnWhitefriars Pink Swan 20190610

Pink was a special colour (as was black), it is definitely a Whitefriars swan, the shape is correct and is one of the earlier ones, as it has a flat, polished base. I presume it is around 8" tall, as it has four wing pulls?

Thank you, yes it is 22cms tall, is there any way of telling when this may have been produced and what sort of numbers were made?

Unfortunately with the pink colourway it would be impossible to say how many were made, as for the age of it, could be anywhere between 1938 and 78 the period for flat, polished bases, footed swans were introduced in 1978 until 1980.
