HNW - Blackwork Duckies

Greetings to all,

As the result of a joke shared with a friend, I am planning to embroider 
a pair of shirt cuffs with blackwork duckies and bunnies.  The bunnies 
will be no problem, as I have found a little blackwork hare to use as a 
pattern, in the Elizabeth Geddes blackwork book; but I'm having 
difficulty finding duckies.  Does anyone happen to know where to find a 
nice little blackwork duck that I could use for a pattern?  I am not 
particular as to variety or pose, but it would be nice to find one that 
was used no later than 1650 or 1700.  If that's not possible, I'll take 
what I can get.  Thanks for any help.
