THIS LISTING:

An absolutely stunning set of four ceramic flying ducks / mallards - just WOW!

This rare set is in excellent vintage condition. The colours are bright and shiny. There is some very light crazing but it is only light; that's the only 'flaw' to mention. Incredible condition really!

Such an incredible set and definitely hard to find - especially all four.

Measuring approx 26cm, 22cm, 18cm and 14cm long each.
