    Beautiful Piece of Work

    Posted by Patricia on Nov 14th 2020

    The detailing on this is gorgeous and my son-in-law will love it. The head came off just below the neckband during the shipping process but I can see that it had been attached with adhesive, so I will re-attach it before Christmas. It is a beautiful little creature, unlike any duck that I am familiar with.
