I couldn't help noticing there was a newly listed (on ebay) Dilly Duck, in the old style, in Flint or clear glass....lovely,  but the price is going up sky high!  I'm beginning to wish I had bought the one I saw in the charity shop now,  instead of telling them what it was and where it was made and an approximate value!!  :pb:

Chris I honestly don't know as it's my first dilly! I'll check next time I go upstairs and report, shall also try and get some photos when I can find himself's camera again. (He hides it!  ;D) I'd no idea there were so many variations in shape though...  :o

Assume you are referring to this one Rosiposie.........

You are right , it is one of the early ducks with fire polished beak and they do command a premium price - although this one is described as "large|", it is in fact the smaller of the sizes made at the time 5 - 5.5 inches.  Mine in the above photo link is the large one at approx. 7 inches.

Whitefriars ducks seem to be the current trend at the moment, getting higher then average prices on ebay right now.
