Every kitchen needs a few ducks hanging around. They are symbols of freedom, flexibility, and adaptability and make marvelous good luck totems for all good cooks.
So it is no wonder that this vintage midcentury ceramic duck tureen is both a functional kitchen dish and also a stylish art piece for your space. Handpainted in bright colors, the base features a duck pond scene with lily pads, butterflies and tropical green foliage. The lid features a floating duck with highly detailed feathers and wings. Pretty all the way around, it is lovely for entertaining as it makes a great centerpiece and also a functional serving dish. Unmarked as to maker or date of manufacture, we can't pinpoint this dish towards one specific designer but that gives the duck a little air of curiosity.
