More About this Item


Description: This is a Mallard Drake duck decoy that was made for and by Don Gearhart. Mr Gearhart became the President of Sinclair Oil. He lived in Oklahoma and Traveled to Texas and Louisianna for business starting in the 1930's. Some of his decoys have dates carved into the bottom. This decoy is dated 1941 carved into bottom. Mr. Gearhart made his own personal rig of decoys to hunt over. On business trips he would take his decoy rig and hunt over them. He was known to hunt in Louisianna and elsewhere. These decoys are diminutive in size (about life size) which made them easier to take on trips. Mr. Gearhart was an engineer and designed an ingenious keel that kept the weights. This is the original keel on this decoy. This decoy has the info carved onto the bottom "Don R Gearhart Tulsa, Okla, 1941." Decoy is all original with little paint loss but it does have some real gunning wear (not much). There are a handful of Mallard Drakes this is one of the better ones that this cataloger has seen. Mallards are very collectible. Overall it is about 12 14" long, 4 3/4" wide and 5 1/2" tall. This bird has great attitude and great vibes. A rare bird indeed!
Dimensions: 12 1/4" X 4 3/4" X 5 1/2"
