Madison Mitchell Maryland Canvasback Hen Duck Decoy Signed 1944 Original Paint
Offering for sale a Madison Mitchell Canvasback hen duck decoy signed and dated 1944 in original paint. Mitchell signed this decoy along with the drake I currently have listed at one of the Havre de Grace Decoy Festivals in the late 1980s. The back feather detail is bold as he did this on his earlier hen birds, being more subtle on the drakes. Prior to being painted at Mitchells shop, the neck had a check or tight crack probably occurring when the head was attached to the body, was puttied, and then painted, all original to the bird. Also, there is a very tight check in the bottom that can be seen in the photos. This bird measures 16 long and is offered with no reserve. Please look at other decoys I currently have listed.
