Terrific Hollow Carved, Turned Head Standing Wood Duck Decoy by Clarence Fennimore, Bordentown, New Jersey, circa 2010. Fennimore initially planned to make this Wood Duck as a Stick-Up Decoy, so he put a hole in the bottom. Later he decided that it would make as Nice Standing Wood Duck Decorative and here we have it. It is Wonderfully Carved and Finely Painted, standing on a Carved Oval Rock Base. It is in Excellent Original Condition with a Couple of Minor Flakes off the Feet. It is Branded “CGF” and Signed “G. Fennimore” on the bottom of the decoy. It measures 15” in length, 5” in width (the base is 9 ½” in width), and a full 11 ½” in height. It is a Wonderful Display of a Popular Bird.
