Hans Bolling duckling

The Duck & Duckling Series is a celebration inspired by true events. In 1959, a Danish police officer stopped traffic in order to let a young family of ducks across the road. Inspired by the newspaper photographs from this event, Hans Bølling designed the duck and duckling figures to playfully commemorate the event.

Now important icons of Danish design, the figurines are still handcrafted from solid teak with smooth, rounded forms and elongated beaks.
