    I recently bought this unusual squat duckling figure. I would like to know if this is a Primavira. The glaze is the same of similar figures I have seen, but any discernable markings are worn off.
    It stands about 3 1/2 - 4 in tall and is oddly proportioned like a Martin Bros bird ,which is what attracted me to it!
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Regards
    Pete

      Apologies if you already know this.

      I don’t know what a Primavira is, but my guess is that’s it’s a figural ash receiver. These were popular in the 1930s, 40s

      Here’s a similar occupied Japan example
