Truly an adorable duck / bird figurine. This figurine is HEAVY, perfect as a paperweight or doorstop. I believe this is soapstone, and that it has been dyed this great orange color. I dont think it is paint as this is just too smooth, but I suppose it could be. Flowers beak, eye, and tail feathers have been carved. Except carved area, overall very smooth. You can see through the orange dye on parts of this piece. A little wear on the bottom. Not sure if it is a duck or not?? I think this would be a perfect addition to the 70's decor or even mid century because of the smooth lines. Orange is very in right now.
