9 inch Sucker style. Hand carved White Cedar. Wood tail. Hand painted.
This is decoy #575 handmade in Little Falls, MN by H&S Decoys.
H&S decoys was started when Sandy and Howard's son in law asked for a decoy for Christmas. They decided to make them instead of buy them and are now about 650 decoys into thier hobby. Howard has said at 1000 that might be a good place to retire. Howard hand carves each one and adds fins and lead. He does the base paint, then Sandy takes over and works her magic hand brushing the very artful designs on each decoy. No 2 are the same. Howard and Sandy are both very happy smiley people and you can tell just by holding one of thier decoys. Its Sure to put a smile on your face.
These H&S decoys have won multiple ribbons and awards. Good folkart investment of an also very usable fishing decoy. Every Decoy is swim tested and approved by Howard!
Shipping is included in the price of the decoy!
