This figurine is a mystery to me. It is two tone (black and clear) and has an applied molded foot as was used on various Murano tourist trade items in the 60's . The duck itself is consistent with the "Daffy ducks" produced by Whitefriars but without the "controlled bubbles". There actually are a couple of very small bubbles but this is obviously unintentional.

I have struggled to try and determine where it was made and by whom - and give up !  It is, however, skillfully made and very attractive. A perfect item for a ("daffy") duck hugger ! 

The figurine/paperweight is a clever combination of black and clear, on a clear foot. It is about 5 3/4 inches high, 3 3/4 front to back and the base is 2 inches in diameter ( 14cm high, 7cm long and 5cm diameter base)
It weighs 300 grams and the condition is excellent - " as new" with no visible damage what-so-ever.  


The postage and packing charge is for the parcel to be sent by UPS (United Parcel Service) for you to collect from a local newsagent or cornershop. This has the advantage that you do not have to be at home for the parcel to be delivered and is also much less expensive than other postal alternatives. There is full tracking of the parcel and you are notified by personal email and/or text when the parcel has arrived and can be collected. Photo identification is needed and the service, to mainland addresses, is usually about 2 working days. You are welcome to contact me (with your postcode and cell/mobile phone number) if you want me to advise you of your nearest UPS service point.

This postage method is shown as “Other Courier 3 days” on the postage options for this item. If you “win” then all you need do (mainland addresses only) is “click” on this option !

Should you not wish to use UPS (or are outside their service area) then a higher postage rate will apply - depending on the carrier.

Please note The items we list for auction are normally antique, vintage or simply “secondhand. As a consequence they are not usually in “mint condition”. We do however try to give an accurate condition of the items and will, wherever possible, try to show any fault or damage by means of a photograph. Frequently however scratches, chips or slight loss of colour cannot be seen in a photo. Some minor surface marks,particularly on the base of an item, are to be expected and are consistent with the age and the use of the item and are not specifically mentioned unless we consider they may cause a problem or detract from the item.

As a matter of course we try to research items offered for auction and provide a “provenance” based on this research. This is not any form of “guarantee” or “expert opinion” and must be treated with caution as it could be erroneous. We appreciate receiving additional, or corrected, information about any item we offer and will amend the descriptive notes about an item should we receive such information from any reliable source.  Your comments would be very welcome on any item we list !


Wherever possible and reasonable we will combine postage costs for items purchased on the same day or,  if we are notified of a buyers intentions of purchasing further items, within a few days of the first purchase

Please note that we try to keep postage costs as low as possible whilst at the same time ensuring that the item is safely packaged. A nominal charge is sometimes necessary for the packing of the item and we are, regrettably, obliged to charge about 10% above the Royal Mail or courier rates to cover premiums levied by ebay on the postage and packaging.
