ugly duckling

This beautiful handblown glass swan was given to me in the mid-1950s when I was about six years old. It has a white pearlized body with bright metalic gold wings, and its tail is of softly spun fiberglass. Back and forth it wobbles on legs made of springs, and a clip afixes it to tree branches. I have cherished it from the first moment I saw it.
