Delicate pair of red-breasted mergansers with long thin bills, carved wooden crests, and glass eyes. Most likely MA, but do have a CT feel as well. These birds recently came out of a shore home in Boothbay, Maine that had been shuttered since 1957.
Drake has tight break at base of bill, reglued many years ago. Measures 15.25" long x 6.5" high x 6.5" wide.
Hen excellent in all respects. Measures 15.25" long x 6.25" high x 6.5" wide.
