- 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.
