MINNESOTA FISH DECOYS~OLD
SUPER RARE DECOY WITH TALL BODY
FORM AND METAL TAIL!!
Fish decoys by old time Minnesota carver Frank Mizera are highly
collectible and early examples of his work are especially sought after.
This 7 1/2" pike has a very early, tall body form and is painted black with
stylized teardrops in yellow and orange. It is further accented with orange
dots on the sides and yellow, orange and black dots along the back. The
most interesting and unusual thing about this decoy is that it has an original metal
tail. This is incredibly rare and is the only metal tail Mizera decoy we have ever
seen over the years. There is still sufficient original paint on the tail to guarantee its
originality and we fully stand behind this rare and one of a kind decoy. The
condition is all original with normal signs of age and use including paint loss to
the metal fins and a small hole in the right front fin which is how the decoy was
hung up when not in use. It has excellent patina and age. For collectors who
seek out the rare and unusual, this item deserves serious consideration.
