    I think it's just broken in a way that it resembles a duck. It could be a piece of furniture brass, the two holes are for the nail/screws.

    The piece you found has an 'open rose pattern,' which was very typical of the Victorian period. It could have been on a number of pieces like a lamp, furniture, or any decorative piece.

    As far as it being shaped like a duck, that is a coincidence.
