SUPER RARE FISH DECOY BY
DOCUMENTED MAKER!
B-602
$395.00
Toivo "Dave" Lahti is a very obscure fish decoy maker from Minnesota. His decoys
are featured in the reference book FOLK ART FISH DECOYS (available in the
reference book section of this catalog) and are extremely rare. This jointed decoy
is a classic example of this carver's work. It has carved gills and is beautifully
painted. The condition is beautiful, original and never used with wear to the lower
tail tip. Mr Lahti had debilitating arthritis but was able to craft very fine decoys. He
passed away in 1962 and his work is very seldom seen.
