This a wonderful hand-carved and hand-painted half-size "Mallard Duck" decoy. Created by master Illinois carver, Charles Moore, from De Kalb, Illinois. Mr. Moore who carves in the Illinois River style has been carving for over 40 years; this decoy is from early in his carving career. He is also noted for his expert restorations of works of prior greats from his field. Please note the combed and detailed painting and coloration on this carving.
The drake measures 10" in length, 4 1/4" in width and 4 1/2" in height. Marked on the bottom "Chas. Moore '74". This is as close to mint as the day it was completed. If you collect and enjoy contemporary carving and know of the work of Charles Moore you will want this great Mallard Drake for your collection.
