There's no doubting why the Swan Vase was named after one of the most elegant and romantic avian species on the planet earth. It's slender, curving shape looks just like the neck of a swan. Of course, the surprising fact about the Swan Vase is that is wasn't created based off of a real swan's neck, nor was it fashioned simply from the memory of what a swan looks like. The Swan Vase was actually molded from an old chair leg.
Created by London-based designer Kenyon Yeh, the Swan Vase would be a perfect addition to any home, especially in the spring and summer time when one's garden is rife with beautiful blooms. Available in black and white, the Swan Vase is cast in resin and features 23 karat gold detail on the top edges.
