Today we are delighted to offer for sale a beautiful vintage hand-carved wood mallard duck! This special little critter looks incredibly life-like, you just have to see it in person! 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 and patina commensurate with age. This is a fabulous opportunity to own a truly one-of-a-kind work of folk art, and true piece of Americana! This duck decoy statue would make a fine addition to any Avian sculpture collection, and American folk art collection. A special piece for a special buyer!
