I'm a collector, not an expert so I try to give my best opinion on carvers and condition, but won't take any decoys back if you have a different opinion. All pictures taken inside with mixed fluorescent and incandescent lighting. DESCRIPTION: Here's a nice, old canvasback hen by one of the Upper Chesapeake Bay's (Maryland) more noted carvers, Charlie Bryan, who passed away in 2008. Signed and dated 1965, this is one of his older decoys and has been hunted over.
Nicely painted and carved, there is also a stamped M or W in the bottom. CONDITION: Use the multiple pictures to assess condition.
Excellent with a few scuffs, wear and tear, typical of normal gunning use - actually really good for a hunting decoy. There is a neck crack and dings to the breast. Dimensions i n Inches (Length by Width by Height) and Weight in Lbs-Oz. Approximately 15 x 6 x 7.75 inches ; 2 Lb - 10 oz. The item will be carefully and securely packaged.
