A pair of vintage carved and painted Duck Decoys, Mallard Hen and Drake, 16-1/2L, ca. Both are signed by the maker on base: RJ GJ 58 (see close-ups). Ill update the listing if any collectors out there can identify the maker.Artistically and realistically painted decoys with glass eyes. The hen faces slightly to the right; the drake, slightly left.
Grading and evaluating decoys is well-beyond the area of my expertise. The photos are probably the best description for this lot.
Condition : Both have general wear and small losses on the tails, as shown. The hen is missing her right eye. Exceptional paintwork with superb detail on both.
See photos for complete details, close-ups and hidden value. Please consider them as part of the description. Each measures roughly 16-1/2L x 5-1/2W x 6H overall. These decoys weigh approximately 2lbs apiece.Good Luck, thanks for looking, and be sure to bookmark my Auctions, listed and ending daily.
