The old paint is well done and does show a beautiful patina from the years of aging. The decoy is mounted to a large piece of driftwood that I believe is old Cedar. The old decoy does appear to be in flight. The carving is solid with normal wear, wings are solid to the body, small chip on the bill, small hairline cracks where wings joined to body, some loss of old paint as you can see in pictures. This only adds to the character and patina of the piece.
The large decoys wing span is 29 1/2, from its bill to the tail 18 and 3 1/4 tall. When mounted, the piece is 15 wide, 15 deep and 15 tall.
