Outstanding hand carved and painted decoy from Tidewater Va. Every inch of it is carved in exact detail to give the texture of feathers. This bird is in excellent estate condition with just a few areas of minor paint loss and wear. Looks like the tip of the bill had a knock and the wing tip was cracked and repaired with wood glue, see pics.
Stands approximately 9.5" high 15.5" long. Mounted on driftwood which looks to me like a piece of red cedar. Solid body is probably southern yellow pine.
