Listed is an interesting canvasback from the Upper Chesapeake and possibly up the Susquehanna River. Eli eve the paint is original with the white lead based paint being a second coat. The bottom of the bill is unpainted which makes me think there was a sliver broken off and was spoke shaved flat. Could have been made that way, but I do t think so.
Very cool, long body decoy. The sides are straight like Sam Barnes decoys, but rear of the back is like a hump. Im thinking it is a turn-of-century decoy.
