EXTREMELY hard to find any CANADA GOOSE decoys made by this maker at all. FRANK SCHMIDT older brother of the infamous Ben Schmidt worked along side each making decoys for a living. This decoy is near mint in excellent original paint and condition. This decoy has the wire feather stamping on the back of decoy and a nicely carved head. Fine example of Franks work.Vintage FRANK SCHMIDT (circa1950's) goose decoy with original paint, patina, and glass eyes. FRANK probably carved right along side Ben while making this decoy. You can see all of Ben's influence in this decoy from the feather stampings down to the paint pattern. This large goose decoy, in excellent condition, is the best one that I have seen since collecting 40 plus years ago.
Please look at all photos for sizes and condition.
