Duckamorphic candlestick? Is there such a thing? Yes !

I would welcome any thoughts (keep 'em clean) on the origins of this.
The decoration on the reverse is similar but hand applied so differs slightly.
The base has just white (lead?) glaze but no marks.
It is about 20 cms x 20 cms.
Bought it from France.

Might be by one of the Quimper potteries.
Even though there are no marks, can you post a photo of the base please, it'll show the composition of the pot better than a top photo.

My guess would be Spain or Portugal
