Root Head "Coot" Decoy
This root head decoy, probably a Coot, retains its original lead weight and great painted surface, with occasional accents of white paint to give him a more "live" appeal. He has a great aged and weathered surface from use, nice tool marks, and nice form. Measuring 11" long by 5" wide by 6 1/2" tall. A great piece of folk art!
Provenance: The collection of Judith & Gary Gay, Morrow, Ohio
