Painted eyes as typical with Madison Mitchell. Signed in electro pen and dated 1983. (Item 0250) Asking Price: $475.00
Redhead drake decoy in strong original condition and paint. This is a pre 1950 decoy since the U nail for the anchor line was vertical (front to back). This technique was later changed to horizontal since the vertical position would split the decoy. Some small dents and scratches, but overall in very good condition. Some detail carving around the bill. Weight and loop for anchor string have both been removed. Not signed. Labeled on the bottom HTO. (Item 915) Asking Price: $275.00
