MINNESOTA FISH DECOYS~OLD
SUPER RARE NICKEL PLATED DECOY
BY WELL KNOWN MAKER!
Merrill Booth became acquainted with old time copper decoy maker charles
Slechta while working at the Ford plant in Minneapolis, Minnesota. presumably he
learned the art of making copper decoys from Slechta. Booth is a top name in old
time copper fish decoy makers having mastered the techniques. His decoys are
extremely collectible and especially difficult to find in excellent
condition.Nickel plated examples are extremely rare and ones in excellent
condition are especially prized. This pike measures 10 3/4" long. It has
painted eyes and a cut out mouth. The condition is excellent and original. it
appears to never have been fished.
