Lathe-Turned MALLARD WOODEN DUCK DECOY Pair Pascagoula Decoy Company Circa 1940s
Great folk art!
Offering a pair of lathe-turned WOODEN MALLARD DUCK DECOYS possibly by the Pascagoula Decoy Company, circa 1940s.
The pair has original paint with overall light wear and some flaking paint. The hen is hand painted in several tones of brown and has a beautiful textured feather design on her back. The drake is painted in tones of olive green, grays, black and brown with a bright forest green paint on his head. Both have their original glass eyes. They measures 15" long and about 6" high. Most likely this pair has been together for nearly 80 years!
Factory-made decoys were available after the Civil War and the best know at the time, were from the Mason and Dodge factories in Michigan. Around the 1920s, a number of factories opened in Pascagoula, Mississippi, included the Pascagoula Decoy Company (PADCO).
