Great folk art miniature fish decoy.
This wonderfully folky vintage decoy is a true miniature, only 3 3/4" long by 3/4" high. Despite its tiny size, it is beautifully detailed with 4 tin fins and a tin tail, a gold eye which seems to be metal (the other eye is missing). The body is carved wood, spectacularly painted in silver, gold, black, red with multicolor sparkle dots. This little decoy has a big presence.
I've had lots of great fish decoys over the years, but this is the smallest vintage decoy I've come across.
Excellent condition, with wear to the paint and one eye missing.
