Outstanding eider drake from the midcoast of Maine. This bird's form, condition, and surface, along with its incredible eye detail, make it one of the finest eiders we've had the pleasure of handing in quite a few years.
This eider had remained in the same home for the better part of 50 years and was part of a well-known early Maine collection. He was part of a select few decoys the family retained. Fresh to the market!
There is a small chip to underside of bill, several chips to tail, along with several shot scars. Overall outstanding condition and form!
Measures 18" l x 9" h x 8" w.
