Karen Williamson’s Swan Heritage Journey

We are delighted to share this wonderful story of a piece of Swan history, loved and cherished since 1984. Once given as a celebration gift, never to lose its sentiment through decades of being at the heart of wholesome meals.

Going back to a joyful day in 1984, Karen’s wedding day. She was gifted a set of our Swan red and cream pans along with a tea towel to match. Marking the first day of her journey through married life, together with her trusty kitchen essentials.

As time moved on, this set has now been discontinued, therefore standing as a relic of Swan heritage. Nearly 4 decades later, this set is still being used by Karen! With a few scratches and breaks on the lid, Karen continues to use them daily, for boiling her eggs for breakfast, and also preparing vegetables for a family Sunday dinner.

An inspiring love story between a special gift with countless memories. We discovered this lovely story from Karen’s daughter Jodie. Following a Facebook message, she sent seeking our advice for a new set of pans.
