The feet look like some of the Archimede Seguso ducks. The colors also look like some of their other pieces. I searched Pina's book and found some similar duck shapes, but none that were exact. I still suspect your duck is A. seguso.

The shape is different than Seguso ducks.
I would say more towards the Cenedese company actually.
Do not think it is Barbini either.
