  • See duck.
  • Minute and delicate decorative work done in the middle ages on rondels and lens-shaped pieces of glass, in imitation of miniatures in manuscripts: but few pieces remain, a collection having been brought together by the Marquis d'Azeglio in 1876. In a few cases rock-crystal was used instead of glass.
