Beautifully carved from American chestnut this Mallard duck would be a great addition to any sportsman's collection! It is rare to find chestnut beams this size but Peter has a few so this duck was carved from a solid piece of chestnut wood! Lots of natural cracks, nail and worm holes all in the right places! The wood grain is awesome as it is visible through the paint and gives the overall look of antiquity. Great Father's Day gift!
