Outstanding and important rigmate pair of mallards, Harvey Stevens, Weedsport, New York. Each is branded "HA Stevens maker Weedsport, New York Standard Decoys." Drake has very unusual inset tail feather curl. Strong and excellent feather combing on back. Hen's back is feather loop painted, including loop figurals at edges of each speculum.
Outstanding original paint; small wood imperfection on underside of drake; very small chip to one side of drake's bill.
