Ontario/Michigan Bluebill

OBW2 13" very hollow, thin bottom board b Bluebill drake with pinch breast and deeply inlet head. All original with fine comb painting on the back, and taxidermy glass eyes. The wooden keel in pegged into the body and the nails in the bottom board are recessed and filled (hard to see). The inlet head and pinched breast are similar to the work of Sam Collins and other 1800's carvers from Essex, CT. The hollow body and keel are more typical of Michigan/Ontario birds. A very old and perhaps unique decoy exhibiting the best of decoy craftsmanship.

ED POMEROY BLUEBILL

ED POMEROY,ORILLA,ONTARIO,CANADA PRICE REDUCED! OBW1
Outstanding early drake b Bluebill from noted Ontario carver Ed Pomeroy one of the Pomeroy brothers.First quarter 20th century in O.P. as well as very good condition. Some rubs to the paint as shown on the side as well as a couple small areas of the head. The only possible exception to the statement regarding O.P. may be a small amount of gunning hunter touch-up to the white paint around the bill and the wing patch which is not certain either way. Working decoy has great form and retains the original glass eyes. Nice addition to any collection. Ca. 1935.

ERNIE FOX SWIMMING BLACK DUCK

ERNIE FOX,BROCKVILLE,ONTARIO,CANADA PRICE REDUCED! OBW3
Ernest Edward (Ernie) Fox in a great example of his work with this tucked head swimming black duck in great form. Early period example with paddle tail and humped back. Decoy retains the original glass eyes and is in O.P. as well as condition. In-use even gunning wear to the paint with no structural problems noted. Ca. 1952. Ernie created less detailed more folky carvings in his early work as he learned his trade from another well known Thousand Islands carver, Jack Shepherd. The decoy also shows the influence of fellow carver Ferman Eyre. Ernie liked to especially carve and paint Black ducks, Broadbill and Whistler decoys because he was color blind and needed the assistance of his wife to mix the paint as well as to choose the glass eyes.

Walter Donaldson Black Duck

Walter Donaldson,Kingston,Ontario OBW10
Walter Donaldson Black Duck in original paint as well as condition in wonderful form with delicate rasp work to the surface. The late Walter Donaldson (1914-1991), carved about 400 decoys mainly in the early 40's. See as a reference, Stewart's book "Decoys Of The Thousand Islands", pages 38-39. Decoy shows old in-use well worn paint and a small crack around the base of the neck. Head is not loose however. Donaldson is one of my personal favorites, because he really in my opinion understood the importance of form.

Thin shell delicate Drake Redhead in mostly original paint and original condition. Some over paint to the neck, breast and tail area which is well worn. Hollow with a 1/2 bottom board board showing Wells great yet simple attention to small details. When Wells carved a decoy the first thing that comes to mind is it looks like a duck in the water and that is probably the best compliment any carver from any era can ever achieve!

Addie Nichol Redhead

Addie Nichol,Smith Falls,Ont., OBW12
Important 12" long Drake Redhead by old time Smith Falls,Ontario carver Addie Nichol, uncle of well known carver Davey Nichol. The style of this decoy was once attributed to Bob Jones from Demorestville,Ontario. Recent publications have led to this working toller being identified as the work of the elder Addie,aka James Adam "Addie" Nichol. Decoy is hollow and as such very light showing some wear to the tips of the paint as well as a few shot marks. Note the distinctive swirl as well as feather paint detailing to the back. Great form and a decoy in original paint as well as condition, making this very collectible!
