8 Duck Images
Today we have a very nice collection of Vintage Duck Images! The images featured below are lovely full color illustrations of various kinds of Ducks, and most were scanned from Antique Books in my collection. There are several different species represented here like Mallards, Aylesbury and Muscovites, as well as a Quirky Anthropomorphic Duck that we’ve added just for fun. Some of these birds are featured on their original creamy paper backgrounds, complete with aged patina. I think those guys would work great to print and cut out… and add to pretty pocket inside of a Vintage Style Junk Journal. All of these images are nice vintage pictures, that you can use in your craft or DIY Projects. They would all be fun for your Collage or Card Making projects as well!
Mallard Duck Images
Featured here is a beautiful Mallard Duck Image. He’s got a beautiful emerald green head, brown chest, yellow beak and bright orange feet. He looks quite pleased with himself as if he knows he’s a beauty!
I believe this one is a female Mallard. She has lovely bright blue stripes on her wings, that coordinate nicely with the blue Iris in the background!
This is a wonderful Vintage Mallard Duck Image! This one was scanned from an Antique German Print, I believe the print may have come from an old children’s encyclopedia. Shown on the left is a lovely Mallard Duck. He appears to be having a drink from a stream or pond. I’m not sure what type of bird his friend is, it looks too large to be a Duck, perhaps it’s some type of Goose? He appears to be looking at the Mallard quite intently, as if he might just give the Mallard a bop on the head with his beak!
Brown Duck Pictures
I’m not sure what type of Duck this guy is, be he is quite cute! He has brown feathers, with lots of markings on them. His neck is white and he has a bit of green on his wing.
Here is the latest addition to this collection. This one is called a Yellow Billed Duck. I think we can all see why he is called that. Haha!
Aylesbury Duck Pictures
This next image was scanned from a Circa 1854 British Poultry book! Featured here are two White Aylesbury Ducks. I’m guessing we are looking at both a Male and a Female. They have lovely white feathers and yellow beaks and feet. We’ve kept the original paper background on this one, with some aged spots along the edges.
Muscovite Duck Images
This one is also from the Circa 1854 book. It shows two Muscovite Ducks. They have green and black colored feathers and red details on their faces. I call these guys Turkey Ducks, because when you see them out and about, their heads look a bit like Turkeys!
Indian Duck Illustrations
This pair of lovely Duck Images are breed called “Indian”, according to the British Poultry book that they were scanned from. I’m not familiar with the name of this breed. These guys have black feathers, with matching feet and beaks.
Funny Duck Clipart
Lastly we have something a bit more comical! Shown above is a funny white Duck, wearing a Hat… he’s holding an Umbrella over a Lady Cat, who is dressed in her finest clothing! This one was scanned from an Antique Nursery Rhyme Book. So quirky and cute.
I hope you enjoyed this fun curated collection of Duck Images! You might also like our Farm Animal Images HERE and our Bird Images HERE.

Karen, I could be wrong but I think that this is the drake.
The second bird is a goose, but I’m not sure which variety. It’s not a Canadian Goose, but other than that, I don’t know. Maybe someone else is familiar with this variety.
