Handicrafts are said to tell the story of culture.  This Shanghai Handicraft Swan tells a story about China.  Handicrafts were one of China's indigenous resources that were used for economic growth during the 1950s.  These duck sculptures were made and labeled in red stickers made in the People's Republic Of China (sometimes numbered).  They could be bought in pairs as decoys.  There were a few species offerings.
