Antique showcase with duck and sandpiper, 1930, UK
Unfortunately this duck and his little friend the sandpiper, died a long time ago. They have been dead longer now, than they have ever lived. But somebody took a linking to them and put them in a nice box.
And without being able to pinpoint why I love them so much, I had to have these boxes, (we have a second one with a rooster). Is it because they are so very very old? They are from the 1930's maybe even older. Is it because the interior of the boxes is so very nicely set up, with the sand and the plants. Or maybe it is because of the nice shade of blue on the walls of the box. I just loved it, so there it came, to the shop.
Maybe you like it too?
