Mallard (4 Bird 'Box Set')

Mallard Box Set of 4no (Pottery Product)

The Mallard 'Box Set' of 4 comprises of larger birds and is much rarer than the 'Box Set' of 3 birds.

Box Set of 4 - Bird sizes are approx 13 3/8 (13"); 11 5/8 (11"); 8 7/8 (8 1/2"); 6 7/8 (6 1/2")

Produced 1956 to 1958. Very hard to find a full set of four Mallards particularly the small 6.5 inch bird.

 

Rarity - Extremely Rare

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There is some confusion as to whether the 6 1/2" bird actually exists. Bossons apparently did away with the 6 1/2" bird because it was too fragile. One also needs to remember that moulds shrink and vary in size which could cause added confusion as to whether there is a remaining 6 1/2" bird. If anybody has a bird that does actually measure 6 1/2" and not 6 7/8" then we would be interested to know.

 

Accurate measurement takes from the above 'Box Set' of 4.

Mallard 1 - beak to tail 11 9/8" , beak to wing tip 13 2/8"

Mallard 2 - beak to tail 10 1/8", beak to wing 11 3/8"

Mallard 3 - beak to tail 7 6/8", beak to wing 8 7/8"

Mallard - beak to tail 6 2/8", beak to wing 7 1/8"
