Very Old, Hand-carved Wood Decoy with beautiful patina.
This is from my Father's collection, and has been in my family since no later than 1960.
I have no way to prove this, but I have reason to believe that
it was carved by a prolific decoy builder from Des Moines, Iowa,
during the middle of the 19th century.
Doesn't appear to have ever been painted, but rather stained and lacquered.
Very accurate, true to life representation and dimensions. Has brass eyes.
Shows evidence of having had weight attached on the underside at one time.
Wood has checked on the bottom, but has been stable for many years.
There is also a small but visible hairline crack encircling the neck; The wooden plug in the
duck's head suggests that it was reinforced with a screw at some point.
Really handsome piece of artistic History!

Please take a look at my other listed items!

I do enjoy "bartering", and will consider creative trades or other fair offers.
