GREAT LOOKING ARTICULATED
MUSKIE WITH TEETH!
Gordon Swenarton is a talented, obscure fish decoy carver with a wonderful take
on this ancient artform. His decoys have an antique, folky look and are
especially popular with decorators. This great looking muskie has a hand made,
wooden joint in the middle of the decoy that allows the tail to move from side to
side. It measures 8 3/4" long and has a great form. It has an open mouth with
individually carved wooden teeth. It has carved gill and mouth features and the
eyes are made from small porcelain beads. The condition is beautiful and original.
As with all of his decoys, Mr. Swenarton has given this decoy a special patina that
simulates age and wear. The maker has signed the decoy on the belly.
