MINNESOTA FISH DECOYS~OLD
JOHN MONTER SUNFISH 1950 (CLICK HERE)
THE EXACT DECOY PICTURED IN
John Monter was from Hibbing Minnesota and virtually nothing more is known
about this maker. As far as we know, this is the only decoy ever found by this
obscure carver. It measures 9 1/4" long and is painted green, gold and white with
red acceents. The condition is beautiful and original with just the right amount of
wear and patina to give this decoy an excellent and authentic look. Unlike most
decoy makers of the time, Mr. Monter actually signed his name along with his
hometown on the underside of thi right front fin. This is the exact decoy pictured in
the reference book THE FISH DECOY, Volume 3 on page 104.
