Very desireable and early snakey-head model, circa 1905. Neck has an unrepaired gouge in the neck. No tail chip or repair which is rare for these models had a tendency to chip along the grain line on the tail tip. A couple of old collector tags on the bottom along with a strong Mackey Collection stamp. Paint surface is dry and never waxed.A few smudges to the surface which might be easily removed but I made no attempt to do so as it does not detract from the strong shelf presence exhibited by this outstanding decoy. Examples this fine in this early model are few and far between.... Don't miss out on adding it to your collection. The item "SNAKEY HEAD PREM.
