Carved and Painted Wooden Turtle Decoy

$1,525.00 USD

We love the paint decoration on this carved, working turtle decoy.  He measures 8 1/2" long by 4 1/2" wide and 1 1/4" thick.  On the contemporary display stand he is 11 1/2" tall.

The colors are yellow, green, blue, red, orange and brown on a beige background.  Note the sheet metal feet that are also painted.

The belly is weighted with two inset lead weights.  There is a screw-eye on its back to connect the line.

Condition is excellent.  The surface is original and untouched.  There are no losses and no repairs.  The sheet metal feet have some minor surface rust which is understandable considering he spent a lot of time submerged in the lake.

A rare find and in great condition.

An estimated $25 is included in the price to cover packing, shipping and insurance.
