E299 Canvasback decoy carved by John (“Jack”) McKenney (1889-1973) from Chestertown, MD. Brand on the bottom reads: “E. A. VOSHELL” who was Mr. McKenney’s father-in-law. Bill Shauber, another carver from Chetertown, MD, states Mr. McKenney was his Uncle and that he only carved approximately 500 birds in his lifetime, mostly during the 1950s. This decoy retains both its wooden keel (with lead lining the bottom outer portion of the keel) and its original coat of paint with the wear around the middle section of the bird being attributed to significant use in icy conditions.
