* Vintage Item

This shaggy-headed red breasted merganser male duck is solid wood, sculpturally carved with its notched three-feather crest and long narrow red bill. The breast is red with speckles and the feathers are intimated with paint, rather than individually carved. It has a lead weight and rigging hook on the bottom. Both red glass eyes are intact. We corresponded with Bob Jones and his wife Linda, owners of St. Lawrence River Decoys in Cranberry Lake, New York. Linda let us know that Bob believes he carved this decoy and sold it unpainted in the 1990's. The gentleman who painted it added the weight and hook.

The decoy measures 15 inches long, 4 1/2 inches wide, a little over 6 inches tall to the top of the head and weighs 1 3/4 pounds. There is a split in the wood of the tail that runs on top and underneath (shown). The paint's nicked and chipped but mostly intact and the duck displays very handsomely.
