High-Head Canvasback Drake James A. "Jim" Currier (1886-1969) Havre de Grace, MD, c. 1930 16 1/2 in. long
The distinctive carving of the head and bill make this high head decoy stand out from most Upper Bay decoys. Swanson refers to this carving as the "1st good decoy I ever bought." Original paint with gunning wear down to wood, chips to bill, and a few age lines mostly on bottom.
Provenance: Ronald S. Swanson Collection
