Miniature Mallard by the Chincoteague,Va. legend, Miles Hancock. Circa 1967. This 6.5 inch long, and 3.5 inch tall Mallard is a fine early carving by Mr. Miles. Raised wings and scratch paint with small tack eyes are some of Mr. Hancock's finer attributes to his "special" carvings.

Delbert Hudson
Delbert Hudson, Chincoteague, VA (B. 1927 D.1979) Black Duck made around 1945 in all original condition. Head and bill are carved from redwood (redwood could only have been from a screen door purchased at a hardware store).
