A word about our listings: Every item in our shop is thoroughly cleaned and inspected prior to listing. Pottery is examined and tested for restoration.

Whenever possible, items are photographed using natural lighting for truest color representation.

Kudos for The Devil Duck Collection:
"Handpicked pottery and glass from a degreed designer with a discerning eye and a very impressive collection of unique items for sale. A friendly oasis of beauty and design, run by Jeff---the most honest Purveyor of Pottery around. Fair pricing and unparalleled packing skills, with equally wonderful social skills. The place to go for the best in pottery and glass!" - Clifton M.
"I really enjoyed doing business with (the) Devil Ducks. The Roseville I bought from them was beautiful, they described the pottery accurately, the pottery was wrapped really good. A couple of the orders were rather large 6 to 8 pieces of pottery at a time. Everything arrived within a week after I placed the order. The service was excellent. I give them 5 stars out of 5. Thank You" - Janine H.
"I purchased a Cowan bowl from "The Devil Duck collection" store on Ruby Lane in June 2011. What a fantastic transaction! The item was well pictured, very accurately described, and fairly priced. The communications received were friendly, timely and professional. Shipping was very quick and packaging was excellent. The wonderful item was just what I needed. I e-mailed Jeff a couple of times with questions and received prompt and helpful answers. These are very pleasant people to deal with who are obviously knowledgeable about their goods. Their marketing tools show a stable company that is proud of their business.
I highly recommend their services and hope to deal with them in the future. I even received a free "Devil Duck"! Try 'em and see. You'll be happy you did!" - John E.
"I'd like to leave feedback regarding this transaction. I have had so many glass items broken in shipping when I do business with ****. It is SO nice to do business with one of your traders who knows how to package glass properly so it does not get broken in shipping. I bought an adorable piece of antique pottery from Devil Duck Collection and they shipped it fast and safely. It was very fragile, with legs that could have easily broken, but it got to me in one piece. I was so relieved. Thank you to Devil Duck and to Ruby Lane. You guys are awesome." - Tamara Y.

“Recently made a purchase from The Devil Duck Collection via Ruby Lane. Devil Duck Collection should be commended for their professional and personal way of doing business. Excellent/quick communication with buyer. Quick shipping. Best packaging I've seen in a long, long time!

"Funny name, serious pottery - and service! Purchasing from the Devil Ducks was my first experience with Ruby Lane, and they have made it a great experience. I ordered the item Tuesday night, received update emails during the week, and it arrived Saturday. It was well packed, as described (and beautifully photographed) and I could not be happier. I called them about another listing today, and by the time I got to my computer, the transaction was recorded and there was an invoice in my email. Looking forward to many more purchases with the Ducks." - Michael S.
