Preening Black Duck - George Strunk
Magnificent Black Duck gunning decoy by George Strunk, Glendora, NJ. Reminiscent of the fine early examples created by Elmer Crowell, George makes some of the nicest gunning black ducks on the market. Preening pose, with raised, crossed wingtips and a soft paint application enhanced by the texture of the grain of the wood. Fully carved bill details and glass eyes. Hollow carved body. Signed by George with his stamp in the lead pad.
