1999 Carved Wood Dux' Dekes Blue Winged Teal Duck Decoy By Jeff Duxbury Glass Eyes
Description: A beautiful decorative carved wood and painted duck decoy. This is a decoy representing a male or drake Blue Winged Teal duck. The piece is brown with white highlights and has what we believe is glass eyes. The decoy has no carved details except for general shape and curves within the head and outlining the wings. The decoy has a flat bottom and lays flat on surface and would make for a great decorative piece. The piece is signed and dated by the artist on the bottom. Please carefully review the photos as they are part and parcel of our description.
Date: The piece is dated 12/99 or December 1999.
Origin: Purchased at an estate sale in southeastern Pennsylvania.
Size: The decoy measures ~10 1/4" long, ~4 3/8" at its widest, and ~4" at its highest point. The piece weighs about one pound.
Maker: Jeff Duxbury.
Marks: The piece is marked "Dux' Dekes" and has the words "Blue Winged Teal 12/99" in cursive calligraphy and is signed in ink "JWDux" on the bottom.
Condition: The piece is in very good condition with minimum wear or losses to the paint. It is lightly soiled and could use a light wipe down to clean it. The decoy has no breaks or repairs and very vivid colors especially on the head. It has a few scratches and dings to the surface but these give the decoy true character. It also has three small round velvet pieces of material glued to the base to sit on. This is a very nice piece which would display well in any collection. Please see photos for additional condition information.
