Condition Summary: Excellent vintage collectible condition, retaining a marvelous patina!
Condition Details/Specifics: The reddish-orange (?glass/plastic?) eyes of both ducks are very clear, with no cloudiness whatsoever. Because these are vintage items that were actually used for their originally intended purpose (to support books), there is a modicum of normal and not unusual age appropriate wear and handling, though that wear is surprisingly and pleasingly quite nominal. Noted condition factors are: One of the duck heads exhibits a bit of looseness where it is attached at the base so it does move if touched. That same duck head also exhibits a couple of ?rub/wear? spots/marks (we’re not quite sure what the appropriate term is to describe these - they’re not scratches, stains or grazes but are lighter in color than the rest of the wood). The other duck head evinces a light scratch on its head above its right eye. The bases to which they are attached exhibit a modest bit of surface rubs/handling and very minor lower edge/corner scuffing, and one of the bases no longer retains its felt liner, while the one that still remains is beginning to lift off of/away from its underside just a wee bit, though it is still completely intact and adherent to the underside.
