Oldsquaw drake, Mason Decoy Factory, Detroit, Michigan, circa 1900. Premier grade. Slightly uplifted head. One of only two known from this rig, and one of only three Premier oldsquaws to have surfaced. 16" long.
Appears as if an overcoat of paint was removed on much of the decoy, small traces are still evident; small amount of neck filler missing and a few tiny rubs to bare wood including tip of tail, which is slightly worn.
