Duck and Duckling Design Hans Bolling by Architectmade
The wooden ducks are designed by Hans Bolling in 1959 under the name Duck and Duckling. A family of ducks stopped traffic in Copenhagen. We’re serious. It was in the neighborhood of Frederiksberg in 1959, precisely during rush hour, that a family of ducks waddled into traffic, prompting a police man to immediately stop all cars and pedestrians so the ducks could cross unharmed. This charming moment made headlines and wooed the hearts of all Danes, specifically Hans Bølling who was so enamored by the story that he was inspired to create the Duck and Ducklings family. They are made of teak wood, the big duck is 18 cm high and the small duck 9 cm. A nice set with a nice story what can beautify your sideboard.
