This is a lovely, eye-catching, brass duck paperweight. It is part of a collection accumulated through the years. It is 4" tall x 9" long and is quite hefty. The duck has a black lacquer finish and the overlay produces a wonderful speckled look on the brass. It has no maker's mark. This piece does not need to be polished. It can be cleaned with just a soft cloth. It displays beautifully and blends in with other odds and ends on your desk or mantle.
