Vintage 1987 RICHARD MORGAN Hand Carved Shore Bird Sculpture Woodl Signed Decoy
Up for auction is an exquisite, vintage, hand-carved, wood and metal (the beak is metal) sculpture of a peaceful shore bird at rest, by the artist, Richard Morgan. It measures 9 and 1/4 inches wide by 8 and 1/4 inches in height. The words "Richard Morgan Maker" are branded into the bottom of the weathered wood base. The initials "RAM" and the year "87" is carved on the white underside of the bird. I bought this beautiful piece in 1987 in Wolfesboro, New Hampshire. It has been displayed and treasured in a glass cabinet since that time. I no longer have the original card that was attached to the string on the base but it read: "These birds are authentic reproductions of early American hunting decoys. Carved from pine, they are hand painted and have metal or bone beaks. The bases are cut from old Connecticut fence posts." This beautiful, life-like bird is in perfect condition and I hope someone enjoys it as much as I did.
