Vintage Ben Schmidt Drake Canvasback Duck Decoy Original Paint Michigan:
Up for sale is an excellent Drake Canvasback made by the dean of Michigan decoy makers, Ben Schmidt, ca. 1940. This decoy has seen some use but is in all original condition and is excellent structurally. It exhibits Schmidt's characteristic wing carving and his classic head form with detailed bill carving and original eyes. It does have some rubs to the bill and a very tight age check on the left side of the back. Original glass eyes are good and in tact. All in all this is a fine working decoy from one of the greats. PLEASE SEE A RIGMATE HEN TO THIS DRAKE IN ANOTHER sale THIS WEEK. Measures 16” long; 7” wide; and 6-1/4” tall. Please ask questions or for more pictures.Shipping includes insurance and is higher to Canada. Thanks for looking.
