Wonderfully Sculptural Primitive Decoy Goose

With Graceful Organic Single Piece Neck and Head
Hand Carved and Painted Wood
Possibly American

England c. 1880

17.5” high x 26” wide x 7” deep

Condition: In original ”as found” condition this delightfully sculptural goose decoy has a wonderful natural quality. There is a long repaired shrinkage to one side of the solid body, other minor shrinkages and incidental metal staining to the timber around the affixed lower neck sections. Otherwise it is in genuine original condition, with evidence of much use and wear and bearing scars and bruises commensurate with age and function. A stylish and curiously contemporary working bird with exception al aesthetic quality.

Ref: 47/32
