Large Mallard Duck Decoy Carving, signed by master carvers Tom Taber and Hersey Kyle Jr. A beautiful example of American fine art wood carving.
Although not dated, we estimate this item to be from the late 1970s to early '80s. The carvers positioned the bird askew on its base, with its head turned at a slight angle.
Dimensions: 17" long (duck), 8.5" tall (duck and platform), 6.75" wide (platform). Weight: 3lbs 11oz
Condition: Please examine photos closely for most accurate depiction of condition. We've included photos from all angles, but we're happy to send additional photos upon request. This carving is in beautiful vintage condition, with a few scuffs, nicks, and the pre-carving insect holes that are typical for these decoys. No structural damage/repairs. As with all of their carvings, this Taber-Hersey is a special find and a fine example of these masters of the craft.
