Miniature Seagull by Elmer Crowell

Miniature Seagull
By Elmer Crowell (1862-1952)
Elmer Crowell has long been hailed as the Rembrandt of American Decoy carvers. His works can be seen in most decoy museums and better private collections.
The Crowell touch is unmistakable. It is seen both in its execution, in the carving and in the paint.
This Seagull retains its original paint. It also has the Crowell rectangular stamp on the bottom.
Circa 1935-50
