Mallards Ducks Hen and Drake Pair
Victor (Vic) Poverud hand carved and signed decoys in the 1980's for The Wooden Bird Factory in Minnesota before starting Poverud Enterprises in 1989. He made resin models of ducks and other game birds and meticulously hand painted them.
These miniature mallard ducks, a drake and a hen, are each 5 inches long with handsome natural colors and tiny glass eyes. The male is marked "MALLARD DRAKE" on the bottom and the female "MALLARD HEN"; both are hand signed "A.& V. Poverud" and have the gold foil Poverud Enterprises label. Each weighs 7 ounces and are in excellent condition, with a few tiny chips to the hen's tail the only wear we could find (see the next to last photo). Both birds display beautifully.
