A vintage, exquisitely hand painted Mallard Duck figurine by Vista Alegre of Portugal, coquettishly perched with his head tilted to one side and sporting a bit of spaghettiware at his base. Made of hard paste porcelain and finished in a shiny glaze, the tones and detail on this piece are just phenomenal and the overall presentation striking. The bird measures 4 inches in length at the base, 7.25 inches in width from beak to butt and is 6.25 inches tall. We are pleased to report that it’s in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or repairs and is marked VA, Portugal on the bottom. Certain to become a favorite, you can’t go wrong with this.
