This is a matched pair of Surf Scoters and is part of my private collection being offered. Fantastic decoy collection by the master Oliver "Toots" Lawson, Crisfield, MD. All signed and dated, circa 1980's.
Superb all original paint & condition. Paint is excellent and is very sharp, dry, very clean & detailed. All are pretty much mint.All are signed by Lawson on bottom with species and date noted. Solid bodies that measure true to life in size with glass eyes. Lawson learned to make decoys under the guidance of his neighbors, the Ward Brothers. He must not have missed a single lesson as his decoys are superb with the strong influence of the Ward's work.
Very hard to get any of Lawson's work these days, and here is a great collection with wonderful collector species in outstanding condition & style. More pics of these beauties available under my separate listings. I also has a couple of beautiful matched pairs by Doug Eppes.Please see the complete inventory list in the Photo section.
