Image of duck

I bought this wooden duck and I am wondering if this is a real LEGO item.

    I've never seen a LEGO wooden duck with an upturned bill like that, or without the platform base. It could be, but I highly doubt it. That said, an antique toy expert could help ID it – Web Head Nov 13 '15 at 0:38

    @CreationEdge The LEGO Museum has a few more variants of the wooden duck (left, second shelf down). Some of them don't appear to have a platform but it's clear there was a lot of variations in the design. – Ambo100 Nov 13 '15 at 12:00
  • @Ambo Nice. Some very similar – Web Head Nov 13 '15 at 12:59

    Note that the pull-along wooden duck was a very popular toy at the time. Without any markings on the toy or any evidence of another nearly identical copy attributed to Lego, why would one think this particular example was a Lego design? – oddTodd Nov 17 '15 at 4:07

Every Lego wooden duck I have seen, whether in person or on the internet, is sitting on a platform with the wheels attached to the platform. This is the original version:

Here is a later version: enter image description here

Are there any markings on the toy itself that lead you to believe it is a Lego product?
