Whitefriars Duck?.. or not?
« on: February 21, 2010, 03:16:07 PM »
Hi i picked up this recently at the car boot and i was wondering if it is Whitefriars or not. It is amber in colour and 4.75 inches tall and 2.50 inches at its widest point. It also has a ground pontil which is unusual for Whitefriars.
could somebody varify for me. Thanks, Roger.  :)

Unfortunately it is not Whitefriars.  There have been a lot of these around, but so far no one has been able to definitely attribute them to a maker.  Perhaps Eastern European?
