Lot 1169
Back Bay Bluebill Drake, circa 1890
Lot Details & Additional Photographs
This very early bluebill drake exhibits the great form that emanates from the best decoy makers from the Back Bay region of North Carolina and Virginia. It was made by a talented hand unknown to me. This is a decoy anyone would be proud to display prominently on the mantel.

Length 13 in.

Old gunning paint; tight crack to right side of the neck.
