Vintage Mason Factory Hen Bluebill Challenge Grade Duck Decoy Original Paint:
Up for sale is an excellent and early Challenge Grade Hen Bluebill made by the Mason decoy factory, ca. 1905. Note the wide bill and especially fine “snakey head” form of this early decoy. The decoy is in good original paint with some minor touch-up to professionally replaced neck filler and a small area on the left side of the bill. There is also some touch-up to an area that has been professionally repaired in the middle of the back as can be seen in the pictures provided. As one would expect in a 110 year old decoy, there are some minor rubs to the bill, head and tail. It has a lead strip weight on the bottom. This is the Mason factory’s very best and most sought after style. Measures 14-1/2” long; 5-1/2” wide; and 8-1/2” tall. Please ask questions. Thanks for looking.
