Folk art Mermaid Fishing Decoy, Hand-carved, hand painted, most unusual :
Here is an unusual mermaid fish decoy. Measuring 10 1/4\" in length, it is hand painted and hand carved. The body is made of wood, the arms/hands are made of tin. This does have a lead insert in its chest to weigh it down. This does show good wear on it, some rusting and peeling paint on tin arms. This may be an old piece, I purchased it in a lot of old fishing items, old metal tackle box containing circa 1950\'s/1960\'s lures, and there is another unusual fishing decoy from this lot which I will be selling separately. Never seen anything like this before. Shipping is $7. Thank you.
