Absolutely unique; the only known hollow, 'turned head' decoy by William Chrysler in existence. A drake bluebill, made in Belleville, ON, a hundred years ago by one of the most notable, highly collectable carvers. 13" in length. Pictured in "The County Decoys" by Jim Stewart. Ex collection of Bernie Gates. Very early example, tack eyes, in untouched original paint and structurally excellent. X-rays confirm that the head/neck are in their original, unaltered position. You'll be highly unlikely ever to find another.
