    This appears to be a duck. I'd love to know who made it--it just feels familiar. Originally I thought Mid Century Scandinavian but I finally had to give up and hope someone can help me.

    It is heavy pottery with a thick speckled blue and gray shiny glaze. On the base are some letters (?) which may be the signature but I cannot make them out. Does anybody recognize this wonderful bird?

      What a fantastic piece of pottery! I can see where you get the Scandi idea from, but I'm wondering if that says AOKI on the base. It's a very Japanese name, and the glaze is good for that, but the shape is not like any Japanese styling I've seen before.
      It's a wonderful mystery piece!

      Thomas and Karen, thank you both for your responses! Karen, now that you said that, I can definitely see AOKI or even ADKI in that signature--I just didn't see it before--another set or sets of eyes can really help. You may be absolutely right. My plan is to do more research on both names tomorrow or over the weekend and will post the result IF I find any artist who fits. Thanks again!!!
