Customer Question

I just found a light blue swan, I saw the brown one on your page. Has Niloak

Expert's Assistant: I always love having an appraiser look at my stuff. Sometimes its turned out to be surprisingly valuable. Tell us what else you do know and the Antiques Appraiser will be able to better assist you.

I just know it looks just like the brown one called Eagle but it looks like a swan, light blue and about 4-5 inches long, no chips and has your hallmark on bottom

Expert's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Antiques Appraiser should know?

It looks like it is a planter but would be a small plant and I didn't know if it was worth anything or should I just get rid of it?
