MINNESOTA FISH DECOYS~OLD
Here is an incredibly unusual and rare 5 1/4" minnow by Chester Buss. The decoy
dates to the 1940s and is totally original with normal wear, paint loss to the metal
fins and belly weight. It also has incredible patina. The head is painted red and the
body is tan with hand painted black scales. We have seen the woodburned
scales on some of his later decoys but this is only the second we recall seeing
with hand painted scales.
