For as far back as my memory goes, these seagulls have been perpetually in flight. My earliest trips to Aunt Minnie's house included viewing them soaring over her living room sofa in the 1950's. They are a set of four from the Beswick Pottery in England. I think from the Potters mark on the back of them that they were made in the late 30's. They are so nicely painted and realistic in their eternal flight.
