Description

Standing Wood Duck Drake

Charles Hart (1862-1960)

Gloucester, MA, c. 1905

An exceptional stick-up decoy showcasing Hart's intricate carving ability. This bird displays an anatomically correct carved bill, a carved crest, inset wings with layered primary feathers, and incised tail detail. It was originally acquired by a Virginia gentleman whose collection was noted for its exceptional southern decoys and noteworthy examples of wood ducks. This stick-up along with a standing black duck are considered to be two of the maker's very best waterfowl carvings.

Outstanding original condition. The base is not original to the carving.
