Unknown Maker

Rubber Teal

I couldn't find this obviously factory made soft rubber green-winged teal hen in Trayer's reference, North American Factory Decoys.  And, I can say that I've not seen one like it in the past.  This is a working decoy measuring 10.5" in length with a slot for a line tie on the bottom.  Who wouldn't want an authentic rubber duckie in their collection?
