12 long is this early original Dale Houghton carved wooden working duck decoy. Appears to be original paint intact, on the base very small stamped signed, (being so small of a stamp obviously indicates the maker).Larger identifications could perhaps be the user. Original patina intact, also maintains slight feathering that can be seen in my pics. Dale Houghton was a lifelong fishing and hunting guide in Alexandria Bay NY, on the St Lawrence River. Very rare find indeed in fairly good condition especially for a working decoy.
PS: All my Duck decoys & lures I have on, came from an early Adirondack camp collection (collected for 50 years), fresh to market! One will be pressed to find another Dale Houghton decoy, or very very lucky!
