Mallard Hen - Dodge Decoy Company
Exceptional glass-eye Mallard Hen by the (Jasper N.) Dodge Decoy Company c.1880's. Likely the most pristine example you'll be able to find in this species and probably one of the best existing examples from the factory. Light body but not hollow with a slightly curved bottom. Two drilled holes for weight and rigging but appears entirely unused. Soft mellowed surface that has developed a great patina.
Condition: Near mint original condition. NO varnish, NO touch up. All original putty.
