Miniature Flying Mallard

Finely carved and painted miniature flying drake mallard by Hingham, Massachusetts carver Russ Burr (1887-1955).  Professional restoration to one foot and the very tip of one wing feather.  Very minor wear to original paint. We have mounted it on a small wood plaque, rigged to hang, but it can be easily removed by the new owner.  Burr was described as the “Master of Movement” by Joseph H. Ellis in his book, “Birds in Wood and Paint”, featuring noted 19th and early 20th century American bird carvers, published in 2009 (@pp 92-98).  4 1/2"L x 4 1/2"H. (BX-35)
