Hover over image for more detail. Click to magnify.

Early example with snakey head in strong original paint. Minor in-the-making crack on left side of base. A good sliver repair to the bottom of the bill which is common.

One of the best examples we have offered. See our Mason Decoys book, page 79-81.

Mason stopped making goose decoys in 1913, probably because of customer reluctnce to lug these heavy decoys into the field and a short supply of quality Northern Michigan cedar. They suggested substituing their brant decoy, an unsuccesful alternative; we have never seen a Mason brant decoy with a hunter-added white cheek patch.

24" long.
