MINNESOTA FISH DECOYS~OLD

[Item Image] SWIMMING FROG 1940s (CLICK HERE)
EXCEPTIONALLY RARE AND STYLISH
SWIMMING FROG!
L-290
$395.00
Here is an incredibly rare spearing decoy in the form of a frog. Old, legitimate frog
decoys are highly collectible and exceptionally artistic examples with finely carved
legs are a real rarity. This example is 5 1/4" long with a carved mouth that is
accent painted in red. The eyes are faceted red beads and the decoy is painted in
a gray/ green with creamy white belly and red accent painting behind the bead
eyes. Its condition is super nice and original except for a small repair to the right
front leg where it meets the body near the head. It appears that there was an age
crack that was reinforced with a small tack many years ago. The leg was never
broken, just reinforced. This helps to document the decoy's age and legitimate
history and is considered an acceptable in use minor repair. Frogs with delicately
carved legs are very difficult to come by and this one has a very artistic swimming
configuration.
