This auction is for a vintage ice fishing decoy that I believe is called a Fistto, and was made by Brown Brothers in Minnesota. According to a web site I found Brown Brothers stopped production in 1945. This decoy is wood body, tin fins and tail, brass eyes, eye hook tie on his head (the hook is heavily rusted). T is some paint flaking, but it is pretyy minor. T is a thin crack in the wood w the eye hook goes on T are small white spots on the body topside that look intentional. T is a small area of discoloration of paint on the underside of his chin -- don't know if that is old, or some touchup? Overall his paint is in excellent condition as the pictures show. Please check my auctions this week for a group of fish decoys I'm selling. I bought all these myself about 10 years ago at various antique shows and malls, a few on eBay. Thinning out the collection now, have too many collections going on!

I combine shipping on multiple purchases and charge exact shipping costs, no handling fees are added.
