Hover over image for more detail. Click to magnify.

A big, gutsy decoy with inletted head and Wallace's signature bent iron rod weight. Excellent original black paint. White areas probably were bumped years ago. Amazingly, there are no cracks of consequence.

See examples in Kangas' "Decoys, A North American Survey," page 106, and Engers "Great Book of Wildfowl Decoys," page 43.

17" long.
