These old ducks have been in my dining room hutch for serval decades. My father collected duck decoys, and I caught the duck collecting bug many decades ago.
You don't see craftsmanship like this anymore. I have seen vintage carved wood rooster napkin holders, but the ducks are rather uncommon to find.
This napkin holder was hand made in the 1950s. The carved wood ducks have exceptional hand carved detail and were obviously made by an experienced carver. The wood is oak and stained in perfect satin oak finish. The ducks are mounted to an oak wood block in the center with no nails or screws. These ducks are large, and the width between the ducks will accommodate a lot of napkins.
The ducks are 7 1/2" long x 5 1/4" tall or 19 cm x 13.5 cm. In pristine never used condition, the entire piece looks like new and I exceptionally clean with no imperfections or flaws. The piece is not signed.
