Lot Details & Additional Photographs
Kill Devil Hills, NC, 1884-1971, a canvas over wire pair in crisp original paint; these birds represent the best of Midgett's body of work.

Length 22 in. each

From the Personal Collection of Mr. Kroghie Andresen, Charlotte, North Carolina

Marvin Midgett and Manie Haywood were probably North Carolina's finest canvas over wire decoy makers. Pintails, such as these, are rare and the most attractive examples to be found.

Original condition; two very small canvas tears in the drake.
