These three ducks greet you at my front entry when you come into my home. The brass one and the dark wood one were purchases at the PX on base in Okinawa in the early '80's. The dark one is extremely heavy wood. Neither of them could be used for hunting decoys as the colorful painted one would be. He is of a very light weight wood and was created for that purpose. He came from a collection of vintage items your G'pa P.M. had on shelves in their basement family room --another piece your Dad brought home when he was helping G'ma Ruth get ready to move to the Eastern Star home. Where he came from before that, I haven't a clue.
