I just picked up this set on eBay yesterday, and I am after opinions on the bowl that was part of it. It is 13" wide, and has an internal recessed depression for the figure, with very little space around it for movement. It has a faceted edge to the base underneath. The detail of the bowl shown in the Libochovice catalogue, with the Preening Duck, is a little bit hard to determine, to assess if the bowl I acquired is the same bowl as in the catalogue. I think it has some similarities.
I know Sue has a different bowl with the Preening Duck on her 'black-poppy' site, but I believe her's is smaller in diameter. If anyone has access to better images of the Libochovice catalogue showing the duck and the bowl, I would love to obtain more information as to the authenticity of my set.
Hope to hear from someone.
