I bought a mallard wall hanging from Falls city Brewing company with the code no-X-6-67 Mallard duck. The bottom also says Falls City Brewing Co. this is edged into the bottom of the pic. The pic is made of a porcelain/ chalk material. I have found foam one with the exact look with a asking price or $276.00
and since mine is a better quality what is it worth. The little circle in the bottom left should be red and say Falls City. Also the wing has two small dings and the bottom corner also has very little damage on the corners.
Answer Hi Bruce,
Your duck is in great condition. Unfortunately the value of the piece lies solely in it's appeal to brewiana collectors. Without the "Falls City" red circle, this is just a picture of a mallard to those collectors. A wildlife collector may love this. It has bright crisp colors, no surface flaws and vintage charm to spare!
Please be cautious when pricing items using eBay. Sellers use a technique called "fishing", at which an item will be listed with no prior research for an inflated buy-it-now price, with hope for a "bite". I worry my dear questioners and clients will overpay for something using eBay as reference. I saw that one ended with no bids at $179 last month. If I know you though, you got a great deal on this one! The best way to tell how much this is worth is to put it up at auction and let it go- hopefully it will do well!
Have a great day-
