Offered here is an original 17 diam. Wooden sign created by Lou Reineri for my husband's hunting cabin. This exact sign hung on the front porch for many years and now shows some scattered and natural age scuff and soil. The sign remains in original paint with 1/2 of carved mallard drake decoy mounted in center. This entire sign and decoy was made by Lou Reineri, his signature still visible on reverse of sign.
Not sure the year but had to be in the early 1990's. The sign retains the original rope border that culminates with a brass ring at bottom that is now turned a dirty mustard brown color. The decoy's colors and glass eye remain intact along with the exquisite feather carving Lou Reineri is or was (not sure if he is still living). Overall the sign is still in VG++ condition.
A super nice piece of Americana by this well known and accomplished carver. A true one of a kind!
