I've been trying to sell this duck for my grandma, but I can't find any info about who made it or when it was made? Any ideas on how to find some info about this duck?

Thank you!

PICKELFIEND12,

What an amazing looking duck! I bet he has some stories to tell. Do you have any more information about him? Is there anything printed on him anywhere?

Also, you might try asking around over at duckplanet. Someone there might recognize him.

Thats the thing, there are no names, initals or years printed or stamped anywhere on the duck. Its strange to me, where now a days everything is marked when made. All I know is that she collects antique toys, mostly Fisher Price, and this duck was in the box with them. But I will go check out on the site you suggested, thanks for your help!

I found this in the community picture gallery over at Duckplanet. The description just says "Generic Classic Sailor Duck With Pie Eyes" The style is exactly the same it seems just different coloring. But still doesn't help my details much, but maybe there isn't details that are to be found..?

found another pic of that duck, don't know if it gives any information though. Keep scrolling down on this page, it is toward the middle. http://ecofriendlyfreckles.blogspot.com ... -time.html
Hope this helps!

Below the picture on that site it says this:

Here is another rubber ducky and he's vintage! This is the same rubber ducky Andrea's and my Daddy used when he was a baby...and our Nana put in our bath to play with when we were little! Made of natural rubber, this classic sailor ducky is safe for you little one...just remember to clean your rubber ducky good so he won't begin to develop harmful bacteria; a sanitary bath toy is a fun friend! This rubber ducky is titled "AWESOME OLD RUBBER DUCKY" by jonscreations.

(jonscreations is an Etsy thing. I tried to look through it, but alas, it was 42 pages and after spending a LOT of time on RubaDuck, I cannot look at all of them. Hope this helps.
