Among the old composition model Ducks in our collection, some of the Drakes ... and only the Drakes ... have strange little top-knots on the back of their heads.

Here are specimens by (left to right) Unknown, Tipple-Topple, and Lineol.

What breed do they represent, and does the breed still exist?

We would like to see pictures of live specimens!

They are beautyful, SueandLesley Very Happy

Christophe comes to the rescue, of course, incredible what you know, dear friend !!!! study

This is SO funny, I have a book from my childhood, The Ugly Duckling, By H.C. Andersen.
The mother-duck has such a pon-pon on her head cheers

I must have had that book since I was 3 or 4 years old, so I always imagine that duck with a "hat" on Laughing

Looking at it now , I think the illustrator found a very special duck for a model, because I have never seen one in Denmark, - and, and, and..isn`t she a DRAKE ? Shocked drunken

Thank you, Christophe, for the information and for those lovely photos.

Susanne, we think that your ducks must have been a VERY modern family!

That's interesting! Searching a little the only thing I find similar to what Christophe is showing, is something called in Portuguese (marreco de pompom), a kind of garganey.
About the crested duck it looks to be the translation for Canard huppé (Lophonetta specularioides)!
Thanks for showing, I never heard of it before. Very Happy
