Description

Swan

Cecil County, MD

Made in the second half of the 20th century, this swan closely resembles the work of Horace D. Graham (1893-1981) from Charlestown, Maryland. A Cecil County confidence decoy with a removable head and heavily weighted swing keel. The swan displays a laminated neck and head like that seen in the construction of the famous Holly swan decoys. Solid body with some age cracks. Branded "CAPH" on the bottom.

Original paint with heavy gunning wear.

Private Collection, New York
