Wade Blue and White Swallows, Blue Birds or Swifts
Wade, who makes the little Whimsies in Red Rose Tea, makes these birds that remind me of the birds on Blue Willow. There are a lot of variations in different sizes.
They are all on eBay and the price is all over the place.
These miniatures were a gift set.
They were on eBay in the original box.
Some of them are made to hang on the wall. Others are the little solid figurines.
