Exceptionally hard to find matching (and possibly rigmate) drake and hen pair in strong original paint. The drake shows a bit more gunning wear + replaced neck and a bit of back crack filler. Hen is nearly mint except for some small teeth marks on bill.

See "Mason Decoys," page 69, for similar examples.

13 1/2" long.
