MINNESOTA FISH DECOYS~OLD
VERY UNUSUAL BLUE MINNOW!
Fish decoys by Burt Cronquist are highly collectible and extremely rare. They are
featured in the reference book FISH DECOY MAKERS PAST AND PRESENT. It is
estimated that this carver made only a small number of decoys over the years and
this is the smallest example of his work we have seen. It is 3 1/2" long and
dates to about 1930. It is also the only example of this carver's work we have seen
in blue. The decoy has painted gills, mouth and painted eyes and is in beautiful,
original condition with excellent patina and normal light wear.
