L. Andreuccetti

Canvasback Pair

A rare pair of canvasbacks by Luigi Andreuccetti (Sacramento, CA) ca. 1940's. Solid redwood construction. I can't be certain, but, the white on the drakes back may mostly be a later second coat. The remainder on both is excellent and original. Both have glass eyes. The keels have been removed. Both measure approximately 12" in length. See pages 504-512 of Wildfowl Decoys of California by Michael Miller for additional information on this important California maker.

Price: $5500
