Early Wooden Painted Decoy Duck
*All prices include VAT where applicable*
A wonderful, early, hand-carved American working decoy of a bluebill drake. It is made of solid wood, with tack eyes and original old paint with a nice amount of wear.
It has a lovely, plump shape and on the base it is embossed with "RAYMOND" onto a lead weight. It still retains its original weighted bar and fixings on the base (which could be removed if desired).
A lovely-looking duck and a wonderful piece of American folk art.
Height - from base of weighted bar to top of head: 18 cm
Length - from beak to tail: 33 cm
Width of base: 17 cm
