Nesting duck figure in 800 silver. Made by Mario Buccellati in Milan, ca 1930s. The bird is in full tucked-down mode with wings close to body. Engraved and overlapping feathers on body and tail as well as bristly wire feathers on neck, head, and wings. Head turned to the side with unusual long bill (perhaps characteristic of the Lombard species). Expression alert with vulnerability suggested by the bird’s retreat and stillness. Hallmarked. Very good condition with deep patina.

Dimensions: H 5 x W 5 x D 14 1/4 in. Weight: 11.3 troy ounces. #BM994
