They were bought from an hunter in Magdalen Islands (Iles de la Madeleine, Quebec) in the late 1980s. I would say dating from the 1970s.Nice primitive working decoys, in good original condition. Old working paint, probably repainted at least once over the years.
Lots of patina & distress. The drake (white back) has a crack on the base of the neck. The weights are easy to remove (cut rope).It m easures about 12½" long, 5" wide, 5 tall. The hen measures about 12" long, 5¼" wide, 5¾ tall. Those are unique from that area, locals don't make them in wood anymore, using mostly plastic factory made ones.
