Description

Circa 1910 this superb, period folk art decoy duck has excellent patina. The gilt brass beak really makes the duck standout when displayed. The duck’s main body is carved out a solid piece of Mahogany with hand carved details to the back giving the effect of a tail and wings. The head has inset glass eyes and superbly made from a second piece of Mahogany that is carved to allow the grain to give texture and different shades of colour and was strongly glued to the main body the original glue is still strong and holding firm.
