Life Size Hand Carved Canadian Goose Decoy

This handsome guy will slide into any Prim or Country decor and is out of my collection. His life sized self measures 32" in length X 11 1/ 2" wide X 17" tall. Hand carved in exquisite detail, painted and signed by Mike Valley, Prairie Du Chien, WI., it is one of the first he ever carved. While it did have the approprite weights for use on the water I see no sign of that being the case (the leather strap that held them is still present... my guess is that they were cut away many years ago so he could sit flat on a solid surface). His turned head is pegged to his graceful neck and he is solid wood. Please ask for more pictures if you would like further detail.

Price: $510.00 + shipping
