Description

Glance

An anseriform brooch.

Look

Cunningly wrought in the shape of an extremely stylised duck, this brooch is a fine example of traditional Hublandish zoomorphic metalwork.  Its form shows the influence of the far-faring sea raiders who sail the whale-road to the shores of the Rim Ocean, returning laden with the gold and treasure of (in this case) an Ordporian monastery.  The deft-handed smiths of the Hubland folk have adapted the holy Flying Duck into a beautiful brooch, neck arched to gather a fold of cloth, broad tail and stubby wings decorated with rich blue-green enamel.
It is in <condition> condition.
