    I found this little beauty. I am wondering where it could be from and how old it is. Someone loved it because they had it mounted and beautifully framed.

      That is gorgeous!! There might be a tag on the back of the rug. I don't know what species of duck they are, but I am sure that's a big fat clue to the origins of your rug.

      Thanks Efesgirl. I am not sure I want to take the rug off. Not sure I would hang it. I bought it from a thrift store so I like to think I rescued it.

      Then your rug's origins will likely remain a mystery unless someone here recognizes the breed of birds.

      I had a rug guy say Persian but not 100% definite. I will have to take it off the frame.

      Hi, I was just on Pinterest, and saw a picture of a West Indian Whistling Duck that resembles the birds in your rug. I wonder if they could be in that family of ducks? I wonder too if the drake's markings are accurate or inspired y the markings of Mallard drakes. Good luck and I hope you solve the mystery.
