A pair of ducks caught in the late evening sun yesterday reminded me of the wall decorations that used to adorn my Grans parlour. I think they were produced by Beswick and the china ornaments, normally in a group of three of reducing size to mimic perspective, were very common on the walls of northern pit villages and even took on a good luck role which is unusual as birds pictures were generally regarded as unlucky.
A quick trawl through Google found that the flying duck remains highly popular as a bit of retro art and has even developed into wall hangings in the States.
These metal ones are highly popular in Oz along with the Beswick originals
A more modern take in black and white of which colours I highly approve.
but lime green is a shade too far!!
