Carved (Balsa) Wood with Glass Eyes! Heres a unique find that is exceedingly well-preserved!
This hand-carved scaup features intricate hand-tooling, giving it a natural, feathered appearance! This hand-painted bird features two glass, piercing yellow eyes.This appears to be a two-piece design; the head was made separately from the body and assembled deftly to look like one piece. This piece appears to be made of a light but sturdy wood, perhaps painted balsa or cork. There is no signature or identifying markings on this scaup. There appears to be attachment points on the bottom where weights were attached. This antique decoy is in EXCELLENT condition! It appears as if much of its original appearance has been preserved.
The wood body has retained much of its original paint and wavy texture. The extreme tip of the tail appears to have been restored at some point; likely a very old fix.The glass eyes and neck/head are tightly affixed. Length: 14 Width: 5.75 Height: 6. Your item will come from a pet and smoke-free home. If you are not satisfied, please let me know and allow me the opportunity to make it right. Thank you for looking and I look forward to having your business! It is your responsibility to return the item to me in the same condition it was sent to you.
