E291 Early Black Head Decoy, carver unknown. Decoy is from the Mill Creek area in Anne Arundel County, MD – just north of the Severn River. The “C” brand on the bottom stands for “Cantler” – which represents the family who owned the decoy rig. This is an outstanding decoy with an unusual wooden keel reinforced with a lead strip around the entire bottom of the keel. Circa 1920’s.
