Sir,

The picture of a duck on your link strikes me as something I saw in a book called "Inventions that Necessity was not the Mother of" many years ago. The book includes detailed illustrations from American patents submitted to the U.S. patent office. I attempted a search at the patent office www.uspto.gov but didn't find anything similar.
