Waddles, the duck, is a NetsUKe Treasure Jest created by Master Carver Peter Calvesbert for Harmony Kingdom in 1999.
Harmony Kingdom not only produced box figurines for their Treasure Jest line, but also does solid figurines called NetsUKe, that are reminiscent of Japanese netsuke figurines. The UK is capitalized to stand for the United Kingdom. Unlike the Japanese netsukes which are usually made from ivory, the Harmony Kingdom NetsUKes are made of crushed marble and resin, then hand painted by cottage workers in England.
This piece is in excellent condition and comes in its original box with the Harmony Kingdom pamphlet and place card. Hallmarks include the half moon, HBC logo (treble clef), the copyright symbol, and Pc for the artist. There is no mouse on this piece. Waddles is model number TJNDU with an edition size of 6670. The figurine was issued for sale on 1/1/2000, and retired on 1/28/2013. It measures 1.26 x 1.77 x 2.36 inches.
Waddles is noted in The Harmony Kingdom Reference Guide by Leanna Barron on p. 114.
