Item Description:

William H. Quinn (1915-1969)
Yardley, PA, c. 1950
17 in. long

One of the best pintail pairs to come out of the region, this matched pair is out of Quinn's personal gunning rig. The grand bodies are hollowed and feature the region's signature raised wing tips that are quite pronounced and sit above the long thin tails. The underside of each has a painted "W. QUINN YARDLEY, PA."
Excellent original paint with minimal gunning wear and some drips removed from the drake's right side.

Provenance: Thomas Eshenbaugh Collection William Butler Collection
Herb Wetanson Collection

Literature: Alan Linkchorst and Artie Birdsall, "Bill Quinn," Decoy Magazine, July/August 1993, pp. 8-10, rigmates illustrated.
