This paper clip holder is from the 1979 Otagiri Mallard collection. It is handpainted porcelain and was made in Japan. This can also double as a creamer or could be a mini-planter or a scrubby holder. There is a small chip on one of the duck's feet. It is a small chip and only noticeable on close inspection. I have included a photo to show the problem area. The cost has been discounted because of this flaw.
