Lot Details & Additional Photographs
Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina, circa 1920s, carved and painted wood.

Length 17 in.

The Marvin Midgett wooden duck decoys have a very stately look. They are extremely rare as he made mostly canvas over wire decoys. The rig mate to this decoy is published on page 315 of Gunnin' Birds by Kroghie Andresen.

Original paint, multiple age checks in the bottom including one check that causes wood separation at the base of the tail.
