Platypusgift star Pewter Figurine



High quality pewter cast duck billed platypus figurine


This detailed figurine (small statuette) of a duck billed platypus is made of Australian pewter in Tasmania.
It's a nice piece of art and a great long remembered gift (it's just too good to be thrown in a box or kept away)

The base is designed as a pebbly creek bottom. Velvet padding makes the statuette scratch-safe on delicate surface, so it's ideal as a paper weight, or desk / shelf decoration - a great piece of Australia in your home

Cast in text on a pedestal features platypus animal:
The Platypus
A small shy animal inhabiting the streams and lakes of Australia. The platypus is an egg laying mammal - one of only two members of the monotreme family.
