Fred Everett sculpted 3 painted models from which Hubley cast 3 doorstops:
3 GEESE -- --- Mold # 457
PHEASANT -- Mold #458
QUAIL -------- Mold # 459
All 3 were signed on the front " FRED EVERETT " hidden in the grass
This marking did not disturb the view of the Wildlife because it was not obvious to the eye.
All 3 had their mold numbers engraved on the Back.
Fred T. Everett died one week after his sixty-fifth birthday at the VA Hospital in 1957.
