This is an excellent old all original drake mallard by one of the premier decoy factories in North America circa 1920's. The beautiful old mallard is either a Mason Standard Glasseye grade decoy or a Hayes Superior model drake mallard. I am not a factory decoy expert and I have heard different ideas on Mason /Hayes differentiation so I will let you decide. The decoy had a spiral dowel connecting the head to body, a wider neck head joint which would suggest a Mason decoy but the wonderful black swirls on the back suggest a Hayes decoy. Either way it is a great 90+ year old drake mallard in original paint and very good condition. He has glass eyes and a metal ballast weight with a hole in front for an anchor rope. There is a fairly tight check running down the bottom of the decoy and some minor dings and scrapes which one would expect of a decoy of this age. There are a few places on the sides where the paint has worn through to bare wood from normal wear after decades of hunting. This decoy just surfaced at a farm sale in central Minnesota so he is new to the decoy market.He isapproximately 15 3/4 " long, 6 1/2" tall and 5" wide. Dont miss out on your chance to own this great old workingdecoy. Please check out my other sales. Shipping cost stated is to the continental US only. Good Luck!
