A cute classic Modernist Duck figurine set of a mother and two goslings in the style of the Danish Architect Hans Bolling, who created a series of teak ducks in the 1950's.

This set is made from a rare wood called Cryptomeria Japonica, or Japanese cedar, which only grows in an area near Kyoto, Japan. It typically presents a unique heavy grain, hardened by a lack of moisture and poor soil. It is unusually light because of the dry climate, almost like driftwood. Carving this fine wood is the sole craft of the tiny village of Samegai. Two figurines are unmarked, but one of the ducklings has a sticker on it's base which reads "OMC" Japan. This stands for the Otagiri Mercantile Company.

The duck heads are on posts, so they can be moved and posed at various angles. The eyes are either glass or plastic, it is hard to tell. The feet are in good shape, and as a whole, they are in good condition. They are quite light and delicate.

This set is very cute, and can be posed in almost unlimited variations for viewing on a mantle or curio case.

Large mother duck 3.25" x 3"x 1.25"

Goslings 2.25" x .75" each
