Labrador Duck hand-signed & framed
From the Ford Times series of prints, this serigraph is “Labrador Duck” – an extinct waterfowl once very abundant. It is signed in the plate. This copy is in excellent condition with a professional framing presentation. Inset in the mats is Charley’s pun for this image. A great copy of this print and ready to hang on the wall!
“The fate of the Labrador Duck is obscure, but it was undoubtedly hastened by egg collectors and by wholesale slaughter for the retail market. During the breeding and moulting season, when he lost the power of flight, his flocks were helpless—sitting ducks for the hunting ships sent north by the feather merchants. The last survivor was shot on Long Island eighty-two years ago, but he is memorialized by forty-four stuffed specimens in museums and by countless antique featherbeds. ” Charley Harper
