Joseph S. King (b.1909)
Edgely, PA, c. 1940
This fine pair displays traditional raised wings and tail carving, glass eyes, and incised bill detail. The maker's "J S King, Edgely, PA," stamped weight is on the bottom of each. This pair is believed to have been painted as black ducks and then repainted by King shortly thereafter as mallards.
