Vintage Rare Mason Factory Drake Pintail Duck Decoy Glasseye Original Paint:
Up for sale is a very good, Glasseye model Drake Pintail from the Mason Decoy Factory, ca. 1910. It is in worn original paint with some old over paint having been removed from the sides. An umber wash has been applied to darken that areas that are worn to the wood. The neck filler has been replaced with some touch-up to that area. It also appears that there has been some minor strengthening to the speculum on the right side. These early Mason pintails in any condition are very tough to come by, and particularly so with as much original paint as remains on this one. Some brush marks are still visible. Measures 17-1/2" long; 5-1/4" wide; and 6-1/2" tall. Please ask questions or for more pictures. Shipping includes insurance and is higher to Canada. Thanks for looking.
Please note that we are leaving for the National Antique Decoy and Sporting Collectible Show in St. Charles, IL on Tuesday, April 23. If you pay by the evening of Monday, April 22 we will ship before we leave. If not, your decoy will ship the following Monday. If you are attending the show, we can make arrangements to bring the decoy with us to deliver to you there.
