Folk Art Redbreasted Merganser Hen Decoy



Folk Art Rebreasted Merganser Hen Decoy

 

Charles Foote, Seabrook, NH, Ca. 1900

 

Distinctive long-bodied sculptural decoy with painted heart on back. Excellent original paint. Tight age shrinkage neck crack. Never rigged nor had eyes.

 

We have only seen merganser hens and Canada geese by Foote.

 

Most Foote decoys do not have eyes; some have mother of pearl eyes.
