Carved Miniature Ringneck Drake Decoy
George Boyd (1873-1941), Seabrook, NH, Ca. 1920
Unusual example with head turned 45 degrees to the left (few Boyd miniatures have turned heads). Excellent original condition. Just a couple of fine paint shrinkage spots on its back.
From a fresh to the market collection of George Boyd miniatures we just acquired.
See Jim Cullen's "Finely Carved & Nicely Painted" book about George Boyd, page 80, for a similar example.
3 3/4" long.
