At one time, this pair of expressive 19th century hand-carved and painted folk ducks was likely offered as a thoughtful gift for a newlywed couple. Traditionally, ducks were thought to mate for life and, ultimately, to mourn their partner’s death. Such loyalty created an association with ducks as symbols of harmony, faithfulness and a blissful marriage.
