Today we are delighted to offer for sale a beautiful vintage hand-carved wood mallard duck! A most finely hand-crafted and hand-painted duck, this piece was no doubt created by an artist of great capability and talent. The figure is expertly carved out of wood and hand-painted with great attention to detail and color. The duck has a sweet and innocent look on his face, and has life-like glass eyes. The mallard’s webbed feet are wonderfully detailed as well, and appear to be crafted of painted and molded paper-mache. The figure rests upon a live edge burl root base. The statue presents beautifully and is in very good antique condition, with very minor wear/scuffing and patina commensurate with age. This duck decoy statue would make a fine addition to any Avian sculpture collection, and American folk art collection. Fresh to the market!
Dimensions: 8″ in height, 5-5/8″ in width (at the widest point), 7-3/4″ in length
