Early example from a native set of 17 with traces of a round MAKER stamp. Excellent original condition with no repairs. The set was dirty when found, and they have been professionally cleaned, revealing strong original paint. Flaking on the edge base.

A rare opportunity to acquire a nearly complete set of early miniature waterfowl carvings by A. Elmer Crowell, E. Harwich, MA, made about 1920. We have 17 of the 25 pieces in the original set, including some of the most desirable species like Canada goose, brant, mergansers, etc. There are faint traces of the original blue ink round “Maker” stamp signifying that this set was made before the late 1920’s when Crowell began to use his rectangular stamp. All 17 are in original paint. Two (black duck and redhead drake) have tight crack repairs, but no replacements.
