1979 Carved Wood Mallard Drake Duck Decoy By Raymond Hornick Stoney Point Oak Hall VA Glass Eyes
Date: The piece is dated 1979.
Origin: Purchased at an estate sale in southern New Jersey but was made in Virginia.
Size: The decoy measures ~10 1/4" long, 3 3/45" at its widest, and ~4 1/2" at its highest point. The piece weighs a little over 10 ounces.
Maker: Raymond Hornick.
Marks: The piece is marked "HORNICK BROS; STONEY POIUNT DECOYS; OAK HALL VIRGINIA" and signed in ink "Raymond Hornick, 1979" 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. Be that as it may, this is a very nice piece which would display well in any collection. Please see photos for additional condition information.
