Norah Wellings Novelty Duck Beaded Legs

I thought you might like to see my new arrival. He is a Rare Norah Wellings Novelty Duck with Wooden Beaded Legs.The beaded leg design were only made for one catalogue in the early 1930's. There were three characters shown in the catalgue, Duck model 307, Island Girl model 308 and Sailor Doll model 309 and all around 10 inches tall. They are rare as only a small quantity being made and due to the loss of their beaded legs which often break. I imagine this is why they were disconitnued. This particular Duck model 307 is made of wool plush with felt beak and clear glass eyes. He has his original bell and ribbon around his neck with a Norah Wellings label on his foot.I just love him and I hope you enjoy seeing him.
