    We acquired this swan decoy from a old collection the woman stopped buying antiques back in the 1970's because reached the age where she could no longer get around. Her family decided to finally let go of the rest of her collection and this decoy is one of the things we bought from them. The Swan decoy has been repainted so there's no telling if it was ever signed or not. It has a weight on the bottom and a hook to pull it with other then that I don't know anything else about it. But I would love to know age, maker, where its from and more if anyone can help me out I would be so grateful!!!
    Thank you for your time

      We had some swan decoys on here a while ago. I can try and find. Meanwhile, I did find some on eBay you can look up.

      Well I tried looking it up online but most looks new and the other ones range in price and I don't know how to tell a good one from a great one lol. They all kinda look the same with just very little differences.

      I have never seen one like this with such a beautifully, long neck! Nice piece!
