MINNESOTA FISH DECOYS~OLD
FRED LEXOW TROUT 1950 (CLICK HERE)
HIGHLY COLLECTIBLE PEPPERMINT
STRIPED DECOY BY LISTED MAKER!
Fred Lexow is a listed fish decoy carver from Minnesota. His works are featured in
books like FOLK ART FISH DECOYS which is available in the reference book
section of this catalog. This 7 1/4" red and white trout is referred to as a "Lexow
Commercial" decoy. It has all of the great style and classic lexow fin work but
was made as a pure working decoy. These are incredibly difficult to come by and
highly collectible. This example is completely original with an excellent history of
use. There is normal paint loss to the metal fins and a spear mark on each side of
the decoy. It is a true Minnesota classic.
