An early to mid 20th century Cork Bodied Sleeper or Preening Black Duck Decoy with original painted head. The decoy is about 14" long, 6 ½" wide and 6" to the top of the head. This bird was shot over, so it has the expected shot marks in the body and bumps on the head. There is some paint rubbing and one re-enforcing nail (small) in the head, but the paint is 95+% complete. The cork body retains a significant portion of its original paint as well. Found in the Hudson River Valley, I do not know where it might have originated. A nice example if you like sleepers.
