A sculptural carving in excellent original paint with minor flaking on its back. Interestingly, the carved Nova Scotia paddle tail is applied rather than the more typical one-piece construction.

See Guyette's "Decoys of Maritime Canada," page 92, for a similar merganser hen by Rowlings.

18" long.
