~ ANTIQUE~VINTAGE FOLKY HAND CARVED W/OLD PAINT DUCK DECOY ~

I guess you could consider this really old decoy either a lucky duck due to his many apparent mishaps, or an ugly duck... ditto the previous reason! Actually, I'm probably a minority, but I believe beauty does not necessarily constitute "pretty", but lies more in the nature & character. That said, I'd now like to introduce you to this fantastic old folky guy, with character ! Complete with his imperfections as I've shown in my many photos... his paint is old brown, possibly with a black undercoat with no touchups as far as I can tell. His markings are white stripes around his bill and w his wings would be & he has painted red eyes. He also sports a red "dot" on his chest, but it may have just been a paint mishap! I wish I could tell you what type of duck he is... but truth is I just don't have the time to research!

He's solid and somewhat heavy for his size, weighing just shy of 2 pounds. Measuring from bill to tail he s 13" long x approx. 4 ½" wide at the bottom, and his head stands about 6 ½" tall. T is a weight on his underside with "hooks" probably made with bent nails (guessing!) and the remains of string I haven't removed.

He's just a great old compliment your collection, or a nice piece to display in your primitive country home.
