Up for sale is a nice group of six (6) lathe turned factory decoys form various factories. Having consulted Ken Trayer's "North American Factory Decoys," we have attempted to attribute these to specific factories. Since there were so many of these makers producing such a variety of decoys, we are likely wrong in some of our attributions. All are in original paint with some more worn than others. We offer the following in this sale:1&2) Pair of Hudson factory Mallards, ca. 1930's with turned heads, each about 15-1/2" long. The exhibit triangular speculums and the Vac-Sta bottoms which, in theory, helped the decoys stay upright. The drake has "roughage" on the tail, while the hen's paint is more worn and is missing its left eye. 3) Victor Redhead Drake in good original paint. Retains its original glass eyes. 13-1/2" long.4) PADCO Mallard Drake with some paint flaking on the left cheek. Has a weighted keel, unusal for these factory birds. 17" long.5) PADCO Mallard Drake with paint thinner and more worn than the previous one. 16" long.6) PADCO Mallard Hen in good paint. 15-1/2" long.Please ask questions or for more pictures. Shipping includes insurance and is higher to Canada. Thanks for looking.
