This is a Blue Winged Teal Hen Decorative Decoy carved and painted by artist, Leo Koppy. Note the Blue coloring on the wing. But we are not certain it is a Blue Winged Teal but that is our best guess. Koppy carved a variety of ducks.Anyway, it is a wonderful decoy and we hope someone with a matching drake might find it. The photos are a good description. As you can see, the decoy is in virtually perfect condition. It is quite a bit larger than life size: 15 inches from beak to tail, 4.5 inches wide, 6.25 inches tall, and weighs one pound, 13 ounces. Leo Koppy is a well known carver of decorative decoys and influenced many other carvers during the 1970's and 80's.
He is also know for other animal figures he carved. He died tragically and his decoys are very much sought after by collectors. We invite your close inspection and offer.The item "Leo Koppy Blue Winged Teal Hen Decorative Decoy. Mand Cave, Cabin, Lodge" is in sale since Sunday, June 13, 2021.
