Mayhew Family Merganser Drake

Description: 569. Merganser drake c1900 by a member of the Mayhew family of Martha's Vineyard, MA. Nicely carved head with tack eyes and a thin upward curved bill so typical of Vineyard decoys.

Many waterfowlers and decoy makers such as Luther Nickerson believed that a rig of hen mergansers would draw in the more colorful, desirable and wary drakes. 800-1200
