1980 Carved Wood Bufflehead Duck Decoy Signed RDK '80 Glass Eyes
Description: A beautiful decorative carved wood and painted duck decoy. This is a decoy representing what we believe is a Bufflehead duck. The piece is black and white in color and has what we believe is glass eyes. The decoy has no carved details except for a line delineating the bill from the head. The wings are outline in color and not by carving. The piece is signed and dates on the bottom. Please carefully review the photos as they are part and parcel of our description.
Date: The piece is dated 1980.
Origin: Purchased at an estate sale in Southeastern Pennsylvania.
Size: The decoy measures ~9 1/2" long, ~ 4 1/4" at its widest, and ~4 3/4" at its highest point. The piece weighs a little over 11 ounces.
Marks: Marked in white paint "RDK '80" on the bottom.
Condition: The piece is in very good condition with minimum wear or losses to the paint. It does have a few spots of discoloration, one or two stains and some soiling to the surface. The piece has no breaks or repairs. 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.
