Cork and wood carved and painted decoy representing a duck. Flattened oval cork body, with carved, incised and painted wooden head, with a yellow bill, black slit eyes. It has a black stripe along the back of its head, yellow paint at its sides, and a cork body painted black. It has been scratched to show a layer of black underneath the yellow paint. Underneath, is a horizontally attached piece of wood 1" square with hole drilled into the front, presumably to hold the decoy rigging, it runs the length of the bird.
